    Profile of a 116 Weather Warrior barrel

    Can someone help me determine what the profile is for the 116 Weather Warrior in 30-06 caliber?

    The profile is known (at least to me) as a Savage sporter profile and the caliber is not considered as long as we are talking about profiles within a series of rifles. I believe that some barrel makers list a Savage profile, if that's helpful.

    It depends on the configuration . I have a coupke of 116s with different profiles.
    My 116 FSSAK in .300 ultra mag has what I believe to be a "magnum" contour.
    My 116 FLCSAK in 30-06 has a barrel that's fluted with the adjustable brake and is heavier/ thicker than a standard sporter I believe it to be a "medium heavy" or "medium" contour. It's heavier than a standard sporter but not as heavy as a model 12 varmint rifle, 110FP, 10 TR or other LE series rifles. It's not tapered up to the brake like some of the braked sporter barrels I've seen but is the same diameter as the brake near the muzzle and has a consistant taper back to the nut. Not sure if they still do this profile or not as they haven't offered the 116 FLCSAK from the factory in quite a few years.
    My 16FCSS has a 22" standard sporter barrel.
    If I had to guess it's probably a standard sporter contour if not fluted or a magnum.
