    im in the same debate! Is there much persofrence differnce between a 26" vs a 30" barrel?? There is a edge barrel in the classifides im interested in. and was wonder if this would make for a good build for anything inside sayy 1500 yards??? Thanks!

    For a close guestimate figure 20 to 25 fps loss per inch of barrel. So a 26 would be between 80 to 100 fps slower than a 30.

    Will a 26 shoot to 1500 yards? Sure it will. But the 30 will have less drift and drop.
