    Never went there in the first place. I see their merits but for what I do not needed.

    Interesting thread Ground Control!
    Factory ammo is a very important factor .
    My only suppressed/shortened Centerfire uses reloaded ammo because I like everyone else have tried to recoup some but not all of the velocity loss .
    The rest of my rifles now run factory ammo and being full length barrels the velocities are quite acceptable.
    Running factory ammunition in a shortened barrel in many cases means that true velocity’s are often a lot slower than people think.
    Is that a problem, no not really but it does degrade performance in both ballistics and energy on target which as the caliber gets smaller is in fact more and more important
    Let’s face it , if you are here on the forum chances are that you are half knowledgeable and experienced and with hand loading the larger caliber short barrels can certainly hold their own .
    If you don’t hand load and shoot 6mm - .22 etc don’t cut your barrel in my uneducated and humble opinion.

    What if you're like me and put a suppressor on your factory 20" 270. Does that mean my rifle shoots faster and quieter?

    I also have a suppressed 223 and the first time I took my son to the range he asked how loud it was without the suppressor. After showing him I quickly remembered how loud unsuppressed rifles are. F@#k that for fun.

    What .270 rifle comes from the factory with a 20 inch barrel ?
    Personally I’d want and have owned a 24 inch model.......................................

    Then I saw the light
    Just kidding, but 20 inch is short for a .270

    late 80s rugers and winchester model 70s flame throwers with Norma or winchester silvertip factory ammunition...I swear the flame was at least a meter long when shooting on dusk....

    My Tikka .233 with a 15Ē is Loudboomenflamenwefer without a canÖ so itís shot canned. My most used centre fire. 17 HMR is canned as well. After shortening and a can itís very pointable and usable.

    94 Winchester is old school. Irons only.

    Taking the 30 06 to Kaingaroa tomorrow. I run that and my 16 inch bush 308 without a can. They carry way better and years of loud stuff means one or two shots wont affect the permanent circada's I have in my ears anyway.
