I have a left hand Rem 700 in 7mm that's been in my family for years.....it getting to the point where I want to put a new barrel on it, and have almost jumped on some barrels that I have seen for sale but I'm really torn on what I want......help me make up my mind! This rifle will primarily be used for high mule deer hunt when I finally draw the tag, and a little bit of long range steel. I mainly plink steel with my 260 and that probably won't change. My original thought was to keep it in 7mmRM just because I'm set up for it, and it's relatively inexpensive to shoot.....cheaper it is, the more I shoot it. Barrel contour and length.....I am thinking about going 26", but am hung up on contours. I had originally thought something close to a #4 sporter, but after reading many online posts, I'm wondering I'm going to wish I had went heavier.....Anyone like #4ish sporter or what contour would you use? Sorry but as cool as it would be a CF barrel is out of my budget. Lastly I'm torn between doing my first Remage vs having a Smith shoulder it.....if Smith is your route do you have a smith recommendation in SW Washington? Thanks in advance!
