I have a remington .300 winchester that won't shoot worth a darn. Thought this might be a good opportunity for a rebarrel. I was either going to go with a remington magnum stock barrel contour or go with a thicker barrel with flutes. I wanted to not increase overall gun weight, as this will be an elk rifle. Any recs on barrel weight choice?

Just a thought...you might want to fire lap the barrel. Unless you are looking for an excuse to rebarrel, I would try this first. It will lengthen the throat a bit and you will have to redo your loads to match. Look at Tubbs Final Finish, they have loaded ammo and bullets that use progressively finer compounds. Worst case, you have to rebarrel anyway.

If you want a fluted barrel, I believe a #5 contour is minimum for a 30 caliber. At least that was the case in a Lilja......Rich

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
