I would go with at least a 26" and the heavier the better, so the heaviest you can stand. Heavy barrels are going to be more consistent and less finicky about accuracy.

    I would love a 30" krieger but their backorder times are crazy. What other barrels do y'all recommend?

    For a quick Krieger Bruno Shooters Supply: 30 Cal

    If you don't mind the wait I have been having incredible luck with Bartlien barrels.

    Krieger's work to. Last 300 RUM with a Krieger shot .250 at 200 yards with customers old hand loads.

    I occasionally source from www.bugholes.com.

    I usually always recommend Brux barrels but any of the top barrel companies will work fine. If you want to use Durocoat you might as well save money and get rustolem. Go Cerakote
