I'm curious for info on real world feedback on your loads velocities with 24" barrels. I'm only thinking of 24" barrel length for 2 reasons. Easily fits in my hard cases I already have and its easier to maneuver v.s. a 27"+ barrel I originally wanted. This will be a pack rifle used often in the field. Not a bench rest queen. I will be using 250 and 300 grain projectiles. Barrel is 1-10 twist. I'm hoping for an honest 2900 with 250gr and 2650 with 300gr. What do ya think? I guess I don't need advice but maybe is it worth going 24" will the ultra mag?
