HI folks, so ive decided to build a 338/300RUM for my next LR rig to shoot the 300gr SMK.
Its being built on a accurised rem 700 action, and im having a custom barrel built for it which is where im looking for some imput.
So ive asked the barrel manufacturer for a 30inch SS tube, heavy contuour, fluted, with a big slab muzzle brake
. Questions i have are how heavy contour should i go, And how deep should the throat be for the 300gr SMK?
I want the rifle to be heavy enough to shoot comfortably, but not so heavy i cant carry it... so i was thinking i want the finished weight to be around 12.5-13lbs and i have no idea what profile bbl will give me this finished weight... Its going in a HS precision stock...
Any other input would be great
