    Are you wanting a rifle as you posted or a handgun? A 16" barrel including the brake just seems a little short.

    For the most part I think you will find that most members here shoot longer barrels ie 26" or longer including myself the main reason is vel. and extended range, one of my friends shoots an .308 at 1000 yds with very good accuracy it is a heavy barrel with a brake. But it will shoot, for me 20" would be my minimum IMO. I'm sure you will get a lot of different opinions. Stand by!

    If you want to get under 22" or so you may not want to shoot a very overbore round. That said, my pops has a stryker in 300 wsm and it shoots well and produces velocities similar to a 22" bbl. 30-06 in it's 14" bbl..

    I have used a 7wsm and a 6.5x284 in handguns with 17" barrels with great results. As long as you keep it a legal length I dont see a problem. You wont get performance like longer barreled rifles but you will be a whole lot cooler ;)
