Looking to shorten my 24" 5R 700 .308 down to 22". Not looking to debate whether or not this is a good idea. Just trying to shave a little weight and have a better balanced rifle.

Any gunsmith recommendations in the Sacramento region? Also, I'm specifically looking for a gunsmith that can do a Recessed Target Crown.

THANKS!!! :)

Shorten it to 18".

Lighter and can be more accurate. 308 cartridge burns very quickly.

Hes in Aptos (santa Cruz) but he can do it if you mail it to him.

Thanks for the replies so far. Not looking to go shorter than 22". Also, I'm willing to drive a little, but trying to keep it in the Sacramento region and not have to deal with shipping.
