22'' barrel vs 24'' barrel

Post by dieselbeef » Thu Jan 05, 2017 1:47 pm

same twist. steel. eventually will be threaded for a can.

looking for a tikka 223 varmint rifle with 24 inch barrel. not a lot avail. everyones out of stock. it also has a rail on top not holes for rings machined in. but that maybe I can live with

the t3 lite is avail everywhere in the 22 inch barrel. no rail. scope ring screwholes

primary use will be long range targets for my son and fox and yote hunting likely around 300-400 yds. moa is acceptable

not looking for any other rifle comparisons just how much difference does the 2'' on the barrel length really make
im the other gary...

Not much...if any.
I'd say 40 fps at most

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

People shoot AR's with 20" barrel to 600 yds in matches.

What twist?

well I got the tikka varmint with a 24''. whittakers had it for a great price too. I thought with the 223 much over 20 was wasted barrel but I keep thinking it will make it more accurate not faster.

fps isn't as bad as the bullet drop at 500 yds..my buddys scope dope app has it at like 50''...how close is the correlation between the 2? velocity vs drop

I also ordered a cds from luepold in their vx2 line..once I get the caps made itll be a sweet setup . probly with a tip top bipod and someday suppress it
