I'v just been perusing the pages of Gun Trader.
Anyway this brings me on to the fashion for short barrels on rifles firing cartridges such as the 25-06 . . ..270 . . . 30-06
There seems to be a glut of rifles with 20 and 22 inch barrels, why is this, when all of the above will be at their optimum using at least a 24 inch tube . . .surely the manufacturers are aware of the reduction in MV and should offer a barrel appropriate to the cartridge ????
As such i'm actually begining to toy with a .308 winchester for all my stalking needs.
