Maximum Barrel Weight

I'm considering a Stiller Predator single shot; short action in a Tooley MBR stock with 1.350 barrel channel...

My question is... what would be the maximum recommended barrel weight (contour) to hang (free float) on this action?

Thank you for your input, Larry

Re: Maximum Barrel Weight

Being that it is a single shot, the action will be relativly stiff, comparred to a repeater. I would not have a problem hanging a full 1.250 dia. straight bull barrel on that action. Now if you get ridiculously long with the barrel that could enduce some problems. Granted proper bedding is a must, and if your still a little nervous bed the first 2 inches of the barrel shank in front of the lug.

I've hung 30" barrels this way, on single shots and had no problems.
