I have narrowed it down to 2 contestants. What I want is a 22" heavy vamint contour in stainless. LW is about $430 and Templar is about $600. LW comes standard in 1:8 and would take a "few extra months" to make in a 1:9, Templar comes in 1:8.75 which I think from a prior discussion here I would theoretically prefer. My current stick has the same barrel but from LW and it shoots well within the limits of my ability. I am about to push the button on LW, but want to see if there's anyone with a glaring reason to spend more for the Templar.
