I have been hunting and just saw the post and wanted to share barrel length with you .
I have not tested longer barrels but the 23" Liljas I have used gave me 50 ft/sec more velocity
than the factory ammo advertises (2500 ft/sec with the 17 grain bullet ) And in a factory barrel
2500 is not possible in 22" and 23"barrels.
If you do build a Short barreled 17 HMR I would be interested in the results.
