Long Barrels For Flatter Trajectory

Probably not.


Author Jay Langston did some research on barrel length and shot velocity. He found that every inch of barrel length below 28 inches will cost < 1% of your velocity. Even if you went from the extremes (say 28 to 22-inch barrels) it would probably still not have a significant affect on your 40 – 60 yard trajectory.
