I'd probably look for a 1:9 barrel. Personally I think an 8 twist is overkill. Bullets that require 8tw will run under 2900 fps, ans the lighter bullets running faster are ballisticly better in drop until you get WAY out there. If energy and windage is #1 criteria, then heavier is better.

My yet-to-be-fired 300 PRC has a Bartlein 3B on it and is twisted 1:9.5 (after consultation with Bartlein) as 1) it's 100% hunting and 2) I don't intend on shooting anything heavier than 220 (ELD-x).

I got one from Fierce. Carbon Edge. Leupold Mark 5 5-25x56. Awesome long range. With a muzzle break the recoil is very acceptable.

I don't know the answer to this question, but is a 1:8 twist preferred for a 300 PRC? I see the Bergara has a 1:9
Barrett runs 1:8 in their 300PRC 26" MRAD (not lightweight...13.4lbs) which SOCOM selected for 50% first round hit probability at 2000 yds...215, 225, 250gr bullets. They could have chosen any twist, but went with 1:8. Nuff said.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
