Default Going to re barrel my '03

Shot out my old deer rifle ('03) and want to convert it to a dedicated long distance shooter. Gave my 700 to my son so need a new toy. What barrel manufacturer do you recommend, twist, length, etc. Am staying with the '06 caliber and will be putting a brake on it. Retired now and have rotator cuff problems that hurts like heck sometimes. I reload most calibers and have plenty of ammo in various weights. Also have a 223 and 220 Savage w/target barrels but need something with a bit more "reach out and touch 'em" hard shooter. BTW, have a 50 being fitted right now for real playing. Thanks for any help with the barrel selection.
