trying to get the ball rolling on my 300 Wby project, hanging now between a Krieger or a Rock Creek barrel, but not sure about any of it really, just having a hard time making the final decision. Also having trouble deciding on barrel taper, or if i even want a taper?? Trying to come in under 20lb bare gun, if i go with an 11 twist ill stay 26", but i think if i do a 10 twist i wanna go at least 28". rifle will be hunted with, will have a functional mag, and will be used to do some short range competition stuff(100-300-500) longest hunting shot at the moment is 765, put can go to well over a mile with just alittle work. I wanna stay away from the 240gr bullets just because i dont want a super fast twist rifle that pigeonholes me with bullets that i cant come by locally if i need to, so max bullet weight is looking like 200-220gr, which would put me at a 1-10 twist i believe, but i also considered using an 11 twist so i might be able to step down and shoot the 165-180gr bullets as these are more common locally and i thought i had heard someone say that the 210 sierras were made to work in a 1-11 twist...ok im done, please help im losing my mind!!
