Oops, I meant 21.31" of drift and 42.18" of drop with 200 yard zero. Guess I am the dufis.

Look at the tables again. Number right on.
All the numbers were from federals web site, If you correct the .243 you'll have to correct all the numbers, the differences will still be the same.

I did dufis, I edited my post. See above.

but I am curious, why does it matter so much to you? Is this your first rifle?

No, not my first rodeo.

I thought this was a disscussion forum on guns.

Oh, you passed the point of discussion about 100 posts ago. It looks as if its obsession. At first I thought you were just poking the fire, making a funny. but now it appears, you are serious about this.

Got a question regarding the barrel lengths for both the M700 BDL and Ruger MKII both chambered in .243. I see they are in 22" barrels. I always like my rifles with at least a 24" bbl. I'm looking at the Weatherby Vanguard because of the 24" barrel. Should the shorter 22" barrel really be a concern in .243 win?

Thanks.

My Ruger started with a 22 inch...I had a 24 inch fitted after about 16-18 years...I can't tell any difference in performance on game...

You probably won't see a difference. You will gain 25-40 fps per inch of barrel. In the field this won't show up much. There is sometimes no difference in velocity by changing barrel lenghts. I prefer 24 inch barrels but I don't think the 243 suffers much by dropping to 22. It does not have a greart amount of powedr to burn.
