Barrel Weights?

Post by 1578Tiger » Thu Jul 01, 2021 8:37 am

I'm building a Sharps rifle on paper and I'm wondering about the difference, weight-wise between the heavy and standard octagon barrels in 34" length? I'm up in the air as to caliber, either .45 2 6/10 or .45 2 7/8. Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks, Kirk. Are both tapered?
