To all the Shooters on this Awesome site:
My Objective to arm my nephew with a Hunting/Tactical Rifle. He is huge and a nationally ranked Heavy Weight Freestyle Wrestler who will be pursuing a career in Law Enforcement. We want to purchase a 300 WSM
. Savage offers a 10FM model of which is a 20 inch barreled carbine chambered in 300 WSM. Of concern is the following:
Would the 20 inch barrel feature reduce the velocity significantly of the 300 WSM?
If so, What would be the minimum barrel length that one would recommend?
The Savage 10FM contains a Blind Box Magazine. Please input on this feature.
Thank You again.
