whats best

first, does any gun manufacturer offer a 26" barrel on a gun, or is 24 the max for factory? also what would be the best all around caliber out to 500 yds.

    What type of shooting? Targets? Hunting? Deer? Prairie dogs? Elk? Coyotes?

    Yes most of the firearms companies offer 26" barrels in some of their rifles.

    If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives

    AJ is right, there's a lot of questions that need to be asked and answered before somebody can really give you a 'best'....

    But hey, I'm an adventurous guy, so I'll just hang my opinion out in the wind and see what you think....

    Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .308. It's an inexpensive rifle and is a great platform as a start for customizing. It comes stock with a 26" barrel and in .308 you can shoot elk at 400, deer at 500+ and varmints/targets as far as you can see.
