Re: Optimum .300 wm Barrel Length
Those are some crazy long tubes. There is a law of diminishing returns. After 18 inches I would be shocked to see a .308 gain more than maybe 50 FPS per inch. I think a 1/10 twist at 26" is just the ticket( I hope so thats what my Krieger #10 mtu is) . Beyond that the results aren't really appreciable and the rifle soon become a bench queen.
I mean look the the .338 edge guys drilling bears at 1200 yards and dropping them in their tracks. They are using .30 inch tubes.

And catch from breast to breast the noble fire!

The brave live glorious, or lamented die;" - Iliad, Book V
