    Is a Sendero contour large/rigid enough for an Edge build? Going to have 6 straight flutes and finish at 29".

    I wwould like to try and pack this gun occasionally so I don't want it too heavy.

    Thanks.

    Yes that profile should work fine, you might want to utilize a little more straight shank in front of the lug than what Remmington uses on their rifles. Might also consider 28"+brake for a packing rifle.

    It sure has been good to me.

    It'll shoot as well as I let it !

    Why not go 30 " like most ? Just to ring the most out of it maybe ?

    DUH

    The non fluted sendero contour will weigh about 4lbs 14 oz.

    Fluting will not remove that much (about 8 oz).

    For a barrel that long if you want it fluted I would recomend a #6 contour.

    Thanks for the info so far. I have already ordered it...I can still change it if I want. I was just wondering if it will be sufficient to allow for maximum accuracy without weighing a bunch.
