    Hi all,
    Thinking of taking James up on his re barrel offer when I vista Newark, wondering if anyone is shooting a 7mm08 with a barrel less than 20in please? I'm hopeful someone is using something 18in as that's the figure I'm looking for.
    Regards
    Jimmy

    I have a savage weather warrior with a 19" barrel that I use for stalking.it groups at 1"at 100mtrs with 170gr.
    clover leafs with 130gr and thumbnails with 100 gr.
    I would have thought 18" would be negligeable.
    Do you mean James from Jaeger if so he knows what he's doing ask him what he thinks.

    Hi Steve,
    thanks for the input, yes it's James from jaeger and I've been speaking with him today, he told me that he's not built below 20 inch before but I've been doing a little research and the guys in the states seem to think nothing of 18 but I was wanting to get some first hand UK knowledge also if possible
    regards

    I have a stock Tikka T-3 Lite with what I believe is a 22" tube. I wouldn't swap it or change it for anything. It's fast becoming my favorite hunting rifle. ~Muir

    My Sako 75 yesterday with 120gn NBT's but that's about 22" barrel length.
