When I am putting a rifle together to a certain weight I start with action weight use the lightest stock to suit needs then the lightest optics and mounting system then start figuring barrel weight I will give up some barrel length before I go to a lighter contour as a light weight hunter is normally not used at great distances so the small loss in velocity means little and the shorter barrel is stiffer and easier to pack aroundOk, building 4 light weight hunters. What contour #3 , #2B ? Building 2 , 6.5 somethings (Sherman Short , PRC , WBY RPM , 264WinMag) and 2 , 7mm somethings (Sherman MAX , 280AI , LRM , 7MAG) Looking for insight for BARREL CONTOUR . Barrel length depending on cal , 22” to 26” max . So what are the suggestions / recommendations .
Thank you very much!
