    11 Inch Barrell too short on 22 magnum ???

    Quick question as above.. Too short and if so what would be minimum you cut it to ??

    I don't want to wreck the gun but want it to still reach 150 to 200 mtrs for hares rabbits etc although will be mostly closer than that.

    Hornady V Max 30 Grain is what I m thinking of using with it.

    Any tips welcome.. Hack saw coming its way very soon.. (Nah Ill use the lathe ha ha)

    Cheers Happy

    There's some damage I wish to remove. I can remove all the damage at 11 inches or most at 12 to 13 inch mark.
    Its a low value project for a bit of fun not a collectable valuable gun at all. Be nice to have it all tidy though..
    I intend to keep it not flick it off or anything. Also have mate s with youngsters that will use it so short is good for them.
    It will be suppressed also.

    Not too much change as far as accuracy etc and range ?

    who cares.
    my 12 inch 223 is one of the best rifles i have.

    unless you are going to compare figures on paper its still going to shoot and knock over rabbits, It will be noiser but it beats having a fucked barrel
    just keep it above legal
    22 magnum figures will be out there if you look hard enough

    accuracy? who knows? depends on a bunch of factors. short barrels are allways stiffer
    sounds like the barrel is buggered anyway so things can only get better
