    By "inletting" and setting the case in stock probably taken a fair bit of value off the item. Get's it heading for the "Bubba" section.

    Hermitage liked post by 7mmsaum On thread : Where to measure barrel length?
    Then subtract the length of the ammo measured with a comparator, this gives you the length of the rifling Now you can see why the short mag (saum) looks so efficient in a short tube compared to...

    Hermitage liked post by Bagheera On thread : Where to measure barrel length?
    This is correct. It is quite a bit shorter than the barrel looks. For instance, the OAL of a .308 cartridge is 2.800" (therabouts) so a 20" barrel will only have about 17" of rifling and bullet...

    Hermitage liked post by Plinky On thread : Barrels and Accuracy
    If you subscribe to barrel timing theory it’s likely due to the mv not being optimal for the barrel length. I use quickload and the barrel timing calculator for working up new loads. So far it has...

    Hermitage liked post by Tentman On thread : Barrels and Accuracy
    Even the finest barrelmakers will have variation in the bore and land dimensions, and no barrel is perfectly straight. So when a knowlegable gunsmith seeking the finest accuracy shortens a barrel...
