bearcat, 22-24 inch would be normal. You might see if Fiftydriver would give you input.

Budlight shoots one and should post something.

I'd say 26" shortest to be considered and would go w/27". Have a 27" 270 Win hanging on the wall and am please with performance.

FWIW.....

Bearcat,

What do you do w/ the gun ?
Is it a gun you hike in the mountains with,or a more stationary gun ?
I'm going to rebarrel my 25-06 to AI soonish and being that i'll tote it quite a bit i'm going to go w/a 26". Mike

bearcat, I personally don't like over a 22" barrel & long action to carry. Especially if you ever plan on putting it in a scabbard down the road. Just my thought. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

If you are looking for light weight and compact, don't hesitate to be in the 18-20 inch range.
I hunt with specialty handguns and you still get great performance and accuracy with the shorter barrels.
What distances do you want to be able to connect at?
