I went to a custom turned 26" .308 varmit barrel on mine. She's a heavy bitch to carry, but very accurate. Used her for stand hunting hogs overlooking a field water trough, 325 yard to close end of field, 900 to far tree line. She can make any shot needed...
Much too heavy for a carry hunt, ~16 lbs.
Been thinking about a lighter proflie 20-22 upper for it, maybe in 6.5 crredmore. Probably not anytime soon, need to finish a couple other builds first.http://www.jsesurplus.com/308.aspx
Where I got my , he's got an 18" Mega barrel in stock now. Keep checking back, stock changes often here.
