First post on here, figured you guys could help a ton! I’ve shot bolt guns my whole life, but never really delved into them past shooting and swapping scope bases. I’m looking at a new semi custom/custom bolt rifle for myself and I’m going with .308. Going to do the whole project myself. Baptism by fire I guess. The plan is to make it a solid do-everything rifle. I want to use the rifle for both long range shooting and for hunting. I don’t mind a heavier rifle for hunting, so I’m definitely looking at a heavy barrel. My question is, how long should I go with the barrel? I’d like to get as much velocity as I can out of the rifle, but I also don’t want to overkill the length. Any suggestions, pointers and advice would be really appreciated.
