    Got my remington 700 308 cut from 24" to 20" with no loss of accuracy in fact some people would even argue that a shorter stiffer barrel is more accurate than a longer one within reason, you will lose muzzle velocity as you mention at around about the 40/60 fps per inch of barrel removed though I guess it all depends what you want from the rifle just make sure you get a reputable engineer/gun smith to do the work this is the most important advice I can give.
