    Proof barrels

    I built a Tikka today with a Proof carbon Sendero 24” 6.5 PRC barrel that weights exactly 2oz more than the factory T3X Lite 300WM Stainless barreled action. If that same barrel in .30 was used it would weigh almost exactly the same. Carbon is a huge advantage in that in the longer magnum...

It has had some work done and seemed like a good deal, so I picked it up. I'm hoping someone recognizes the work, I am curious who did it. I'm only familiar with...
