I have a new Barnard with a Trueflite barrel, It was just under 18lbs I needed 17lbs for light class BR, i live in the UK, soI sent my Rifle to a Guy called Russell Gall in Scotland,He fluted it and took 1/4inch of the barrel lenght, and lost the 1lb over weight.
It shoots just as well If not better, no reblueing needed .
Cheers
good Luck

Now im no expert but hear is what i think. One of my friends had his barrel flutted on his savage 22-250, and its a button rifled barrel. After the smith did it and he did a fine job, like Weatherby flutes with the bottoms blackened. The barrel lost alot of heft. And with one of my pet loads I fired 9 groups under .25. so dont think that it will hurt the gun. I wont ever believe it
