Barrel diamiter what is your take?

Is this a carry gun ?
What weight rifle are you trying to build?

The contour of the barrel will dictate the weight of the rifle.
It is a carry gun or on the horse I am trying to keep it around 10lbs I guess. With on of your stock as a matter of fact.

If you're not opposed to carrying a 11-12b rifle, you can't go wrong with a Sendero contour barrel. .825" at 28" will make a nice long range platform.
If you want to stay around 10 lbs, you may want to go with .700" ish at 28".

Of course the weight will go up slightly if you deviate from the sporter stocks and standard 1.5lb scope.

Would be happy to make a stock for it.:)
