Barrel cutting?


Recommended Posts

I had a gunsmith cut the barrel down on my .300 Wm R1 from 24" to 20", threaded, and added a muzzle brake with no adverse accuracy issues, just loss of exit velocity. I use it for deep woods bear hunting. It was a blued crio barrel and came out pretty good. I would def have a gunsmith professionally cut and crown the barrel though. A properly machined crown is important for accuracy.
