Going to build my first custom rifle a 338 RUM off of a Remington 700 XCR. Having hard time deciding what kind of barrel to get. I am thinking a krieger but can't decide if i should go stainless or chrome moly. Stainless would be heavier and more expansive. The chrome moly weighs less and is not as expensive and i would have to decide on a finish. I would like know what some of you guys have done and to hear what your opinion is on what i should do as a beginner.
