So I sent my new 7mm08 project barrel out to be put on a diet. Went from 26" to 22" and 6 pounds to 3 pounds 5 ounces and spiral fluted it. Can't wait till it hits the action and new chassis. Thanks to Kampfeld Custom for doing the machining.

Spiral fluting can cut the weight in half??? I might need to do that.

Can a cerakoted barrel be spiral fluted?

Remember I started with a heavy varmint contour barrel. Spiral fluting is very deep and they did cut barrel from 26 to 22 inches.
As fas as the ceracoated barrel, give them a call and find out.

Nice I didn't realize cutting off that much and fluting would drop the weight so much very cool.
