Re: Min barrel length for 270 AI???

What I'm looking for really is this: I have a rifle that is chambered in 270 Win it could use a little "accuratizing" work. Currently it has a 24" sporter weight barrel on it, I would like to have it set back and recut to 270AI this would roughly make it 23.75" long. Is that length able to use the extra the AI provides or is it a waste? As far as the distance I want it to be capable of it would be a long range desert/mountain rifle. Antelope/Mule deer/Elk/Black bear gun. Thanks

Specifically on the barrel really don't know, the accuacy can be affected by many different factors, but putting that aside the rifle currently shoots about 1.25-1.5" groups at 100. Of course being a pre 64 Winchester it is not free floating (it has the bolt half way down the forearm through the stock into the barrel) Its not been bedded and has had no action work done to it. It is a post war rifle barrel date is 1949.
