I'm wanting to improve my shooting at longer distance and think f/tr looks like a safe, fun way to do it. I have a Winchester Stealth in 22-250. It is in the H-S Precision stock. My thinking is to rebarrel to .308 Win with a Krieger barrel, skim bed the stock, put a Leupy 6.5-20 on it and shoot. Option #2 would be to pillar bed in a Manners GAT stock and go with a box magazine. Oh, this rig will probably be a varmint/ hunting rig also. Question #1: Is there a bullet/powder combo that you recommend? If so what twist are you shooting? Question #2: What barrel contour would you recommend? Question #3: How long does the barrel need to be? I'm leaning toward 24". Question #4: What do you think makes a good f/tr stock? Since I would be shooting off a bipod, I don't think a wide fore-end is needed. Can't track in bags off a bipod. Is an adjustable LOP/comb preferred? As I stated, I'm mainly doing this to improve my marksmanship at distances over what I regularly shoot. I want to have fun and improve, but I want to be able to compete as I gain experience also.
