standard contour for remington?

What is the standard contour for a remington sporter, based on this chart? I have a remington bdl stock and I want the new barrel to fit nicely without a huge gap or having to chew out lots of the barrel channel.

thanks,

I measured .632 at the muzzle. Based on this I'm saying #3 is Remingtons equivalent. I didnt take the other measurements (not gonna pull it out of the stock) but they appear pretty standard. My barrel is 24".

Another thing to note... I believe magnum cartridges have a different contour than the standard cartridges...

To my knowledge, none of the custom barrel makers duplicate factory contours exactly with the contours they show in their charts. Most, if you call and ask, have the Remington contours in the memory of their lathes.
