    I like the 7mm with the heavy bullets. Just get a 9" twist or faster.

    Get a hold of Jim Briggs. He owns Northland Shooter Supply. He only deals in Savage guns, actions, parts, barrels, Shilen barrels, and McGowan barrels.

    I just ordered a 7mmWSM from him.

    Jim can most often be found on the Savage Shooter forum.

    The devil is in the details...... Bullet selection is part of the equation as well.

    I have finally made a decision i am going with a manners MCS-T1 stock, savage action 30 inch heavy palma barrel in 300ulta mag and thinkin about having a fast enough twist to shoot the 240 smk's. I think that will suit me just fine. What do yall think.

    The 240 SMK will be a yawner in the next 12 months.

    With all the bullet develpments taking place nowadays, do yourself a favor and get a 1-8" twist barrel to shoot the longer versions as well as the 240 SMKs.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Hello,

    I am sure they do. A lot of barrel companies make the 1-8" twist for the .30 cals.
