257,
Are you speaking about handgun barrel length or rifle barrel length?

16" is in referance to rifles, not sure what the problem would be that he is referring to?

16" is the shortest bbl that can be on a rifle. Pistols have no limit, as long as its concidered a pistol from the start. 18" is the limit for most long range handgun shoots.

I finally had some time to run a few numbers on bbl length and powders. (From Quick Load program)
18" bbl 300mk bullet (bullet travel 15.5")

Re25 120grns 2650fps 100% powder burn 65K
BMG50 146grns 2730fps 90% burn 64K
IMR 7828 117grns 2665fps 99.9% burn 65K



Looks like 2700fps will be possible out of the 18" bbl.

I looked at my loading info for my 338 Lapua IMP with 18" barrel. I was working with R-22 and F-215M primers using the 300g SMK. I was getting 2711 FPS shot over my Oehler, with 87g of R-22 it looks like I may be able to get more fps out of it primers look good and no sticky bolt.

Dave it looks like a fun project i would use a rear grip and bipod or front rest to keep the blast forther away and also off a bipod it would be able to be controlled easier i also like the idea of an alloy 1 piece grip machined you could also make it 3" wide to track a 3" benchrest bag. 18" barrel and you could even go the whole hog and go the 408 now what velocity could you get from an 18" barrel and you Snipe Tac
