Talked to Shilen today about rebarreling my Featherweight. I had the idea to stick with at least a sporter contour or slightly bigger and have it fluted to shave weight, have a stiff barrel, while staying with the "liteweight" idea due to the fact that I hunt from a stand AND still hunt quite a bit.
To my surprize, Shilen DOESN'T flute their barrels.
This is going to be my primary deer gun. Not wanting or needing the extra power of the .270, I will be purchasing one in .257 Roberts.
How about some input on
and Hart barrels
Or even better yet, someone just send me a good barrel in .257 I can use on my Model 70, that they are throwing away.
