The magnum cartridges have 26" barrels, the rest have 24" barrels.

My first 378 was 26",my second 24" and the difference was even less. My 375H&H Ackley Improveds ran the gamut from 22-24" and the differences were nothing. Have had 375H&H's from 22-26" and there's no difference there,worth fretting. The 24" 338Ultra is an outstanding platform too. Have built 243AI's from 22-26" and it's performance isn't hinged on long tubes.

Reality is,contour means little to nothing,because downrange performance is factored by the bore's interior,it's chambering quality and throat/mag harmony. One of the most accurate rifles I've ever shot,is a 700 based sub MR contoured 26" 257Wby wearing a PacNor 1-10".

Wives Tales are perpetuated by folks who don't shoot.

........Uhhhhh....Let me see if I get this right.... Brand new poster, talks the same as Rifle Looney, Busheles, Jesus Trip, etc., etc., and several other aliases....HE'S BAAAAACK........

That's what I was thinking. So far, if this is the latest incarnation of Relentless Pursuit et al, he's been pretty well behaved... but given his track record, it's only a matter of time before his mouth outruns his brain and he's banned again. We shall see.

Yes the genius of all things firearm related is here once again. How long before the old foot ends up in his mouth? Want mustard with that?

Evidently, he has read everything ever written about firearms and has shot every caliber at every animal that ever walked the planet. Didn't you guys know he is the son of the great Hath****, grandson of Samuel Colt? Yes and all that knowledge and "expertise" + $0.50 will get him a cup of coffee at his local gun show. Oh, yeah not to mention he is the greatest gunsmith that ever walked the planet. He did say he's built everything known to man.

I'll bet he doesn't make it to 12 posts, any takers?

I reckon I shoulda mulled the 223AI too,as I drive them from 20-26" with all stops in between. The 22-250AI,243AI,7-08 and 308 are nicely covered too,as far as firsthand extrapolations...but knowing is akin to "cheating" in these circles.

Feel free to guess on,as it is hilarious.
Wow, you hit 20. Guess you decided to be a nice little boy, must have had your medication today. Is that a mustache or are you still nursing?

More succinct would be you mulling the bob of a given rifle's barrel and the velocity "loss" founded after the fact,again via chronograph and ammo denotation.

Feel free to mention which chronograph you gun,as well as a sample of your wares.

Won't be long now. How do you find the time with all the testing you do? Where is this knowledge published? I just can't believe you've denied the gun crowd all that they've been missing.

Boys and girls, this is why they banned lead paint.

Most firearms manufacturers will match the barrel for optimal performance with a specific round in hunting applications.
