I ordered a Wilson .308 Win barrel from Midway today. I could have went with a more expensive barrel, but I will have shot it out before I can appreciate its effect on my scores. $219.99 shipped.

    In a .308, very interesting.

      I like .308, and even though this wasn’t a tanker carbine (that were made in .308), I decided to replace it with a .308. As strange as this is, I heard tale of a man who figured out you could put a .243 Win barrel on an M1.

      Thanks again for posting!

        The .308 is fine, as you say despite it not being the tanker model.
        The .243 is light but that too would be a matter of personal selection for a chambering.
        The .30-06 remains a super sweet cartridge for the massive weight provided that the gas port is kept clean.
