I know there is already a thread regards cutting down a .22lr but thought Id better start a seperate thread rather than Hi-jacking.
I am awaiting delivery of a new Anschutz 1780 .308. The barrel does not come screwcut and has open sights. I plan on getting the fore sight removed and the barrel screwcut, but this is going to leave 2 screw holes on the top of the barrel which will not be of any use as by the time it has been screwcut the fore sight will not be able to be re-fitted as it will hang off the end of the cut.
With this in mind I am thinking of removing 2" from the barrel in order to shorten it slightly and remove the 2 screw holes. My question is how short can you take a .308 before effecting ballistics of the round? The barrel is 22" when new.
Thanks in advance for all help!
