Re: 300 wsm barrel length question
"working" with a shorter barrel is a relative term. It's all about expansion ratios, and longer barrels help that work in your favor, all other factors being equal. The longer barrles going to give you higher velocities in virtually any centerfire rifle. The real question is, at what point does the package become unwieldly for you? It's a trade off that you need to decide for yourself, and your particular hunting situations.
