It’s not an extreme amount and from looking at the barrel weights on their website it’s only a few ounces. I went with a Bartlein 14 26” on my 30 Nosler because I wanted a little longer shank than the standard 2”, I also wanted a thicker appearance. If you are looking for a Bartlein in stock it’s going to be tough but Bugholes has a fresh stock coming in monthly. I have a 24” #13 30cal blank if you need it. I can’t offer any other suggestions because those are the only two I am experienced with but there are multiple others. I’m not interested in gambling $1200+ (thread, chamber, & install break) to see how they shoot and foul. There is some risk in Bartleins CFW since is somewhat new to the market but I’m sure they adapted a proven method, as far as their cut barrels they are superb and I look forward to mine being home in a couple weeks.Thank you. Barrel weight is definitely a big consideration for me. Thats y im giving up length. I like that proof has been around so long, but bartlein has the top barrel in competition. Any others worth consideration?
