Re: help please

Also will a rifle forend work with a pistol barrel? Ive seen pics of pistols with black composite forends that are longer than the factory one and have a swivel for a bipod that looks like a rifle version. Is that what it is or where can something like that be found? Also do you need a special forend for a heavy, or a bull barrel, if I was to order a custom barrel im sure Id go with one of these profiles

Have you decided which company you will use if you go custom. Many companies make foredn to fit their barrels, or can direct you to those who can. There a re number of different custom forends out there. You can tell the breel company to make the spcaing for a handgun forend or a rifle.

Sorry for the poor spelling. My computer was acting up with me and it took 5 minutes to post and couldn't correct anything.
Whoever makes your barrel can make the spacing for either a handgun forend or a rifle forend.

UB, sounds like u're playing with some nice rigs there.

I would also stay simple for big game out to 350 yds. This is not hard to accomplish really with any of the cartridges listed above. 7-08 and 260 Remington would also work well enuf for u, and less recoil to be concerned about, especially if u're not reloading. I would go right to the 2-7x or 3-12x Burris also with Ballistic Plex reticle, and if u get the 3-12x Burris u'll need to practice more with it since @ 12x the FOV is about as critical as i would use in the field. Vertical trajectory is gonna have to be compensated for once u get beyond 300 yds. anyway no matter what cartridge u use, and the big issue will be windage since it's a lot more of a guess than bullet drop. They don't have a laser for windage although there are some gizmos that help somewhat.
