    I am in need of a SS Sendero, #5, Rem Varmint or something similar barrel blank preferably in .308 but I would take a .284 also. Fluted also would be nice but if it is it needs to finish at 26". Would like a Brux, Lilja or one of the other quality manufacturers. Raidergrad@gmail.com

    I think they have what you are after in stock in 7mm

    Only problem is I need one that finishes at 26". All they have is one to finish at 24".

    I am now leaning towards a .300 Win Mag instead of a 7mm.

    I have a Bartlein blank I may concider parting with. 30 cal 5R SS that would finish to 28 but is fluted for 26". It is a 10 twist rem varmint/Sendero contour. I'm not looking to let it go for less than a new blank plus shipping.

    Will the 10 twist shoot the heavier bullets in a 300 win mag?

    The short answer is yes.

    A 10x will work with up to the 240 SMK. Sierra says it needs a 9x but I've never heard of anybody having any trouble with a 10x with the 240. 210s are well suited to a 10 or 11x.
