    It's a 17hmr! what great distance do you think you'd achieve by keeping or losing by the shortening?
    Nothing to much would be my answer, I have a T bolt browning which came standard 16 light profile! it does minute of rabbit just fine.
    At the end of a night I can still lift the light weight rifle, I've been carrying all night and some on some days.
    I have friends with bull barrels. I hear the cursing come in at some point of the night and more so if looking through night vision.
    I find night shooting where I am 100yds in the dark is far enough, I have taken it more but work on keeping the shooting to 100 yards with the 17g hornady.

    Yep an d that 100 - 150 metre max is real for me, especially on the babies.
    Can't get the work done till February through our gunnie.
    Might just have hardened the hell up by then.
