I'm going to be getting a .243 mainly for long range coyotes. I'm not sure about the length of barrel I should get. I'm leaning towards just a regular savage with the accu stock and accu trigger and just painting it myself to keep the price down. What i'm really wondering though is how much of a difference will a 24" barrel make compared to a 22". I probably wouldn't be shooting any further than 800yds. Any comments or suggestions would be great. Thanks.
