1 in 10 is a good twist rate for most bullets over 160 grains.
The barrel size is your call But I would recommend something like a palma contour around 28"
You dont gain much over 28" and the rifle will be muzzle heavy.
I like the Sendero contour or a #8 Lilja contour in 30 cal.
The true "Bull" Barrel is a straight cylinder and serves no purpose in a longer barrel.
Just a recommendation.
