Im not looking to get anything over like 2600fps.
For what you want. I would go to a 20" barrel and stay with the 308 Win cartridge. The AI version
needs more barrel than 20" to perform well.
22" is optimum for the 308,Longer will get more velocity, but at a price. (More powder and more pressure).
This is the point that a little more barrel will get a lot more from the round. 20" seems to be ideal
for the 7/08 and the 308. from 18" to 20" on a 7/08 I gained almost 200 ft/sec.
I have a 16.2" barrel on a custom pistol and I give up almost 300 ft/sec compared to the 20'' barrel.
The 20" barrels are still very handy and should fill your needs. Just a suggestion.
