I purchased a new Bartlein 30 cal 1:10 sendero barrel based on the input from a local smith that the barrel could be fluted after the rifle was assembled & 0 degrees established.
I’m sure someone has done this previously.
I am more accustomed to barrels being relieved by the barrel...
What would you do? Building a backpacking hunting rifle/general long range but ok with it not being CRAZY light since I’d rather pack a little weight than a mule that’s going to beat me up.
26 inch barrel
I’m thinking a fluted bartlein sendero contour is going to run around 3.8-4 pounds since...
