93R17 Bull or Hunter Barrel

Apologies if this has already been asked but I can't find it. Am purchasing a 93R17 and wondered if the bull barrel gives greater accurary? I know the additional weight will help steady hold but has anyone tested the barrels side by side for accuracy?
Thanks for any comments.

I don't know which is more accurate. I have the bull barrel and it shoots pretty good (consistent 3/4" groups at 100 yards).

The Bull Barrel 93R17's aren't that heavy compared to most bull barreled centerfire rifles.

Do the bull barrel. In cases that the bull barrel and the standard barrel are both high quality tubes then it becomes more a matter of which you prefer. But in the case of savage's rimfires I've only heard poor accuracy complaints that couldn't be solved come out of the hunter barrel.
