What barrel is preferred by most for silhouette shooting. I am in the process of building a rifle. I have noticed by reading and searching many posts the popularity of Green Mountain barrels. My question is for silhouette shooting do you want a heavy or light barrel. What are the advantages of the aluminum lined barrels, if any?

What class?

In general, since silhouette is shot standing, you want the heaviest barrel you can hold up, to steady your hold. In a 10/22, mine is a 21 1/2" .920" Clark. One of our Master class shooters has a bloop tube on the end with weights at the end of the tube, for a good "hang".

Therefore, the light aluminum or plastic sleeved barrels aren't ideal. Their intent ( apart from style points) is to give a stiff, stable barrel in a lighter weight. Shootability and portability are at cross purposes.

Some taper is still required for hunter class. And a weight limit.

Don't waste time doing your own trigger unless you're really strapped. You can spend a lot of hours with stones an still not get what $65 for a PC sear,hammer will get you in a few minutes. And still not even close to the $300 KIDD.

Enjoy!:D
