    Trying to decide what barrel length to use. Had originally decided on 30" but would 32" give better velocity/accuracy?

    Thanks.

    You will get a bit more velocity but I would be suprised if it would be even 40 fps going from 30 to 32" in barrel length.

    The Edge is very efficent for its capacity. In reality, a 28" barrel does extremely well. I prefer a 30" barrel for a true long range rifle more for rifle ballance and weight then performance increase.

    That works for me. Out of curiousity what velocity increase does a 30" give over a 28" barrel?

    Thanks.

    From what I have seen with Lilja barrels, less then 50 fps.
