    When a 24" barrel just isnt long enough

    Yeah I think 34.5" will do the trick

    Repulsive creature... like a cross between a politely polished wooded bolt action and a nasty black semi-auto strutting with Picatinny rails. But does it half look like it'll comfortably do whatever work it was bred for.

    It's bred for a long range varmint gun...... something that will reach out further than the 22-250.

    Nice long tenon in front of the action. Get a few re-chambers with that as the throat burns away

    Interesting project. I remember a few years ago one of the F-Class shooters experimented with barrels longer than 30" trying to get a velocity and hence a wind cheating advantage. I seem to remember they had some accuracy problems (less accuracy than what they wanted) - there seems to be something in the short barrelled bench rest rifles for pure accuracy. You would want the bipod/front rest a long way forward on a rifle like that as well I would think.

    Interesting project all the same
