26 inch barrel for a 300 wsm ?

thinking of upgrading my 300wsm's barrel to a better quality barrel, but was wondering if i should go with a 26 inch tube instead of just replacing the 24 incher ??

is there any benefit to the 2 inches longer in the 300 wsm ?

i have 2 and the factory wsm shoots great, but this one is a custom job bling bling, and is not going to be a carried far so i was thinking of going to a heavier profile, and longer.

yeah/nay ??

Advantage is about 50-75 fps and more accuracy, easier cleaning.

I went 27" on my 300 saum and it wouldnt really bother me if it was another inch longer.
