I am looking to build my first custom in the next year and am really looking at the carbon wrapped barrels. I like the idea of taking some weight off the front end of the rifle. The rifle will most likely be a .338 Norma so I can lose 2" of barrel, but i may go the RUM or edge. It will be a semi light weight for caliber, Im thinking total weight will be around 9-10lbs scoped. anybody with light-medium wieght .338 Norma experience is welcome to chime in as well.
