Re: How Much Barrel Whip does my 300 have?
I wouldn't worry about barrel whip as long as there's enough clearance between the barrel and stock. I like .03" clearance, however if you have a wood stock and subject to alot of moisture then you might want to go higher to .04". This way the barrel vibrations can occur at their natural frequency unobstructed. In general long thin barrels will have more whip than shorter thick barrels.
