No feelings hurt. I had 4 inches cut off. The biggest thing that I really liked was the rifle was almost perfectly balanced with the barrel at 26 inches. Before that I was always fighting with it when trying to carry it.

PS: By the way this is the most accurate rifle I ever owned and the second most accurate rifle I ever owned was a used factory 1969 Winchester .243 24" varmint barrel which I bought in 1971. It would consistently shoot 5 shots in the .3s at 100 yds. using Searra .85 gr. HPBT Game Kings and IMR 4350 powder. I loved that rifle.

The most accurate rifle i have ever bought is a savage 111 hunter series. It will shoot .5s at 100 all day long with no problem and .25s if i really put my heart and soul into getting each and every shot touching one another. and a half inch group still is very good... very good... especially for a hunting rifle it shoots 3 to 5 inches at 1000 yards on a non windy day. that was a great 700 dollar investment, glass included.

You are a better shot than I. The best I have shot at 1,000 was a 3 shot group that measured 3+1/4" the best 5 shot group was 8+1/8". Where I shoot in competition you are not competitive unless your 5 shot groups are 3 inches or smaller.
