FPS loss per \" of barrel?

I am just wondering what an average FPS loss would be per one inch of barrel length, ie 24" barrel vs. a 20". Thanks!

    Depends on the cartridge, but I think the old rule of some is something like 20 fps. This can be much more on some of the big, overbore mags though.

    Lilja took a barrel and a saw and shot and sawed and shot and sawed and just kept at it.

    I have a 26" Sendero 300 SAUM and a 22" Model 7 300 SAUM; shooting the same factory ammo the difference is as follows:
    150 gr Sendero - 3430, Model 7 - 3200
    165 gr Sendero - 3250, Model 7 - 3090
    180 gr Sendero - 3130, Model 7 - 2970

    Hope this helps.

    I made a much easier to read graph out of Dan's data. He liked it so much he sent me his code so I could extend the data down to 18" (as alot of guys are shooting 18" 50's). When I get time I'll do so. Graph
    Funny the identical URI works with the URL tag but fails with the Image Tag. Are they ever going to fix this hideous bug?
