Which of these two barrel lengths would be most advantageous for both competition shooting and hunting and why? Would a longer barrel be better? If so, why? Thanks in advance for your input!
That makes sense. What about with something like a 22" barrel? Is there a performance uptick with the 22" or maybe even a 24" barrel?1.5 inches of barrel is splitting hairs. Performance wise, no meaningful difference. Only you can make this decision imo, it’s simply a personal choice.
The .308 does quite well out of a 20" barrel.That makes sense. What about with something like a 22" barrel? Is there a performance uptick with the 22" or maybe even a 24" barrel?
When I cut my Savage .308 from 24" to 18.5" I only lost something like 15fps per inch. You won't be losing much at all going from 20" to 18.5"
Mine is 16.5" an I see no need for anything longer for what I do with a 308. If I need to go past 600 I'll move closer or drag out the 300wm.Any perspective on going shorter, i.e. 16.5"? Thinking on this for a general fun gun and deer stand wackem stick. Full time suppressed.
