    I have a Tikka T3 in 300 WSM. It has a 21" barrel. I want to change it to a 24 or 26. What barrels and twist do you recommend?

    Thanks

    IMO I don't think there is anything wrong with goin shorter on the barrel. The 24" is long enough to be efficient and makes your gun more handy a long stick. short barrels = stiffness.

    As for twist of the barrel that will depend on bullet selection... I love bergers and therefore if you choose to go that way just look up on bergers website and pick which bullet and they have the recommended twist rate there
