If 4" only gives you an extra 60fps (i would be more likely to guess 150fps) thats 60fps, take it if you can.
I installed a 4" Wyatt magazine box, so I can use the mag. Loaded rounds are 3.97", but they work. You may be right about the flexing action though. I do have a 20 MOA NightForce rail on the top, and a one piece bedding block. If all that is flexing, that might be what wrecked my scope!
I'll see how she shoots when I reassemble everything.
Incidentally, I got a $6 foam camping mat at Wally World and a closeout snowboard case from Sierra for $25. Fold the mat in half, trim the end, slide it in the case, instant oversized gun case!
