A spent round flips right outs there. Even my loaded rounds come out, I seated them a little deep

Re: .270win. Striker?

Cool! Thanks for the info. That was my only concern shooting the longer cases in my Striker.
Now come on Payday!

Re: .270win. Striker?

OK I got the .270win. barrel, now to cut it down. I was thinking 16.5" anyone have.any thoughts on barrel length and why? Need some help on this before I start hacking on it.
Thanks

I cut and crowned all my 06 family of barrels at 18" so there's a little more barrel for powder burn. As he said, kick a little more than usual.

Just me.

Re: .270win. Striker?

Thanks Larry, maybe I'll cut at 17 and 15/16's just to be different. 18" is getting out there aways but I would like to have some fps behind it. I'll have to think about it. The hogdgon has loads for 15" pistols. I was kind of going off of them. But 15" didn't have the fps I'm looking for. 17.5 to 18 would pick it up a bit. Time to think!
Thanks
Rupe

Re: .270win. Striker?

The measurement that really makes a difference is 16"=It aint a rifle barrel any more if you cut it less than 16"

Re: .270win. Striker?

Yep your right, but who wanta a rifle barrel on their handgun that is 22" long? That would be to clumsy for walking around while coyote hunting. IMO.
