32" barrel too long for an Edge?

Trying to decide what barrel length to use. Had originally decided on 30" but would 32" give better velocity/accuracy?

Thanks.

You will get a bit more velocity but I would be suprised if it would be even 40 fps going from 30 to 32" in barrel length.

The Edge is very efficent for its capacity. In reality, a 28" barrel does extremely well. I prefer a 30" barrel for a true long range rifle more for rifle ballance and weight then performance increase.

That works for me. Out of curiousity what velocity increase does a 30" give over a 28" barrel?

Thanks.

From what I have seen with Lilja barrels, less then 50 fps.
