Re: Extreme Long-Range Specialty Handgun

wow

How long is the tube?

I am really curios as to the velocity possible with that.

That is a phenominal amount of power in not a very large package.

Re: Extreme Long-Range Specialty Handgun

Barrel length is 20 inches.
Talked about going 18" but since we didn't know of anyone doing this yet, we knew we could shorten it later if needed.
Have not chronographed it yet.

Re: Extreme Long-Range Specialty Handgun

Chuck ordered the barrel from McGowen and he went with a little faster twist than normal, since we were using a short tube and had never done this before.
I honestly don't know, which is really weird for me to say.

Re: Extreme Long-Range Specialty Handgun

I wish you would have told me about this gun when you called the other day, I would have gotten stock in the powder company.
Good talking to you, sure do miss WY and all the great people there.
