Mine's gonna finish at .900 and I'm wondering if I might have gone a little too fat and it may limit my muzzle brake options later, if I choose to get one installed down the road.
Hi immorteq. The barrel on my 260 Rem XP 100 is 15-7/8" long and tapers from 1.25 to 0,89 inches. the pistol with scope and sling weighs 7Lbs 10 oz. I bought it used and don't know who did the gunsmithing. I would not want to add a brake. I my opinion the muzzle blast is already worse then the recoil.
