I am pretty new to the Wildcat thing. Currently I own a Remington Model 700 VS chambered in .243 AI. It is sporting the Factory 26" 1 in 9.125 twist barrel. It like bullets from 65 gr. to 95gr with 75 gr V-max being the best so for. I want to go heavier, 105 gr to 115.
Im looking at a 28" 1 in 8' twist 4 groove Pac-Nor BBl. Will this barrel be a good choice for launching larger pills? And will it still shoot the light stuff with good results? Currently the rifle loves a 75 Gr. V-max pushed by 48.5 grains of H414. That combo shoots under 1/4" and flat lays the smack down on Gray Diggers and Coyotes.
My rifle is not a bench gun, It gets used for hunting. I plan on using it for everything from small varmints to deer and pronghorns.

The barrel you have in mind will do what you are asking of it. Good luck hunting!

The 8 twist will ge great for all the heavy bullets, even the 115gr Ive been able to shoot well out of a 8 twist.
With the .243ai it will shoot 88 through 115gr. Also, the Pac Nor barrel is a good choice. I dont have one, but I wouldnt hesitate to use one.
Just be sure to get the freebore correct for the bullet you will shoot most often.

Pac-Nor's are as good as any, and the 8 twist is a good choice for what your planning to do with it....

I have four Pac Nor barrels for my Savage single shot. I highly recommend their barrels. Great people to deal with, good turn around time.
