The carbon barrel is not typically to save weight over a sporter barrel its to save weight over a comparable long range varmit / bull barrel that would be pounds heavier. 

But if you start putting 40 oz scopes on em its really hard to keep the weight down. I've got to go with Leupold to stay under 10#.

no, custom build. ti action, carbon barrel, hi comb stock, etc. has to upstage my duct tape special somehow  :chuckle:

There was a build that recently finished up on another forum in 30 Nosler that used a similar parts list, Ti action, CF wrapped barrel, CF stock, Ti muzzle brake and once it was scoped up, it still weighed nearly 10lbs.  Other than a very high cool factor, it seemed like a VERY expensive build for only saving a few ounces.
I get that, but with good glass selection and using the same high end components I would anyway, you're saving half a pound just by switching to ti action.

I've built a half dozen or so 28's and the brass is very easy to smoke.... annealing after every firing, bushing dies, and realistic expectations of velocity helps. The 195's live at 3050fps with the properly throated reamer and 27"ish barrel. I'd go 7-300 personally.... just for the brass issue.

Curious, why would you do a 7-300 over say a 7 STW? 

I know you can get Bertram brass for the STW and that seems to be pretty good stuff.

What brass that's available for the 300WM is better than the 28 Nosler brass???

 :yeah: x3 I run a 6.5 and 7 STW. The 7 stw would be a great choice.

Because I have access to a reamer for it.... 😜
Haven't built an STW yet. Wouldn't have any issues with it either. 👍
