Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

I could accept that the powder is ignited within the first 6" but that is about as far as I could go on that. Otherwise, the logic would be a Ruger 44 Carbine would have the same muzzle velocity as 6" barreled pistol in that cartridge. Or do I misunderstand?

I have also read articles supporting 28" barrels as in driving modern cartridges to full velocity. But it has been awhile so I will have to think on where they are.

There was all kinds of these arguments when the RUM and 30-378's came out.

The powder can still be ignitedbut thiers still pressure in your barrel, and to ultilize that pressure, you need more barrel, or the bullet comes out and pressure is relieved. The guys at alliant powder are real helpful with this. And will take your calls on it.

I'd get a 22" barrel if it was me. That is because I light compact guns that are easily accessible in a vehicle, while I'm walking through timber, and lighter when I'm out west chasing Mulies and Antelope.
