I am on the verge of rebarreling a rem700 or getting a er shaw rifle built. Primary use east coast deer, hogs, etc. Pipe dreams of going west when becomes a possibility. 308 win is where I'm leaning 1:12 for heavier bullets thru 18" barrel, mostly suppressed. Looking at 600 rebarrel, 1000 new rifle built off savage action, but with threaded in barrel. Want to stay short action for handling, considering larger bore. Any been there done that regrets or encouragement? Trying to keep rifle about 7 pounds before optics or can.
