    Depends on what you want out of it...Personally, I like 22" the best...I have 2, both 22".

    Strictly hunting deer on the back 40....20-22"

    Long range target...24-26"

    Palma....30+"

    22" long with a Remington 5.5 contour. I wouldn't consider anything much longer than 23.5" in that contour.
