    My mod 7 is factory 20" and it still does alright, i dont think another 2" off it would bother it an awful lot.

    Has anyone tried a real short 260 with a good dose of 2206H?

    Quickload, which is spot on with its predictions for my 260, with AR 2209 and 140's goes from 2620 at 20" to 2550 at 18", with AR 2209 and 120's 2830 at 20" to 2750 at 18".

    Am running a T3.260 at the mo, it is trying very hard to be my goto gun- am able to get 2775fps with 140eldm and 2209, 18" barrel and drops verified out to 400 to confirm velocity. Don't care about case life on hunting loads but have lighter loads for practice/ zero check ect.
