    CZ 527 Varmint. Barrel Chop

    As above, Barrel cut down to 20" I know it will be stiff and should shoot OK. (Cutting and crowning done properly) What does it lose ballistically?

    Many thanks,

    vs a 24" barrel? Probably not that much. I'd say should be doing a bit over 3000fps with a 55gr bullet

    This might help: Barrel Length and Velocity -

    Thanks for this. Still pretty deer legal if I persuade my scottish contacts to let me have a go with his roe. (Looking into the literature 20" was the baseline used by NATO in the first instance)
