I would recommend a RRA Varmint 20" stainless steel bull barrel upper or a Stag 24" stainless steel bull barrel upper. Either one will get you out 300+ meters

It depends on money you want to spend and weight weather your carrying it around or just to and from the car.

Just how accurate do ya need it. I have a RRAs 20" coyote upper . With right load I can get 3/4 MOA at 100 yds. How much weight are you willing to tolerate ?

I have a RRA 20" barreled Coyote Rifle and it is every bit as accurate as the bull barreled models, but much lighter.

I have always had good luck with Model1 sales. Customer service is good, and they wont break the bank.
