Re: Barrel Compromise: Weight Vs. Practicality By Bryan Chatwell
Have read this article numerous times. For a big game hunting 7mm RM I was thinking of going with a LP contour at 28" long. Since reading this, I understand the LP contour is based on a 30" barrel. Seems too long for a hunting rifle that will get used now and then in forested conditions. Anyone used an LP contour shorter than 30" versus a Shilen #5 for example? Probably too close to matter.
