I'm trying to find an 18-20 inch .243 medium or even pencil contour barrel. My google foo must suck because all I can find are heavy contour. I'm not ready to pay the big bucks for a custom barrel, those I've found.

What do you considered big bucks? I know a couple of places for custom barrels. Still cant get anyone to make a ferrium barrel.

I can't see paying over $300 for a barrel.

I'm all set. Have a 19 in, rifle gas put together. Only draw back, I thought, is it's a 1:8 twist. Supposed to be for the heavier bullets BUT it shoots 80 gr's better than 100s. I wanted a 1:10 twist as it will be used to shoot prairie dogs out past the range of my 17 HMR. At 100 yards it shoots factory Winchester 80 gr. into 3/4 of an inch. I'll order dies and bullets to load for it after the 1st of the month.
