Thread: Carbine or full barrel?

  1. #1

    Carbine or full barrel?

    For you knowledgeable folks out there; I will be getting a new CZ 455 in .22LR shortly and will use it moderated most of the time. Will the barrel length affect the carbine real life hitting power much? Most of my shooting with a a .22 is 50-75m and occasionally to 100m. I know that paper punching it won't make much of a difference but will much kinetic energy be lost with the carbine when used on quarry?

    I doubt there will be much difference at all. The important factor is that your POI is correct, the rest will fall into place nicely and the job will conclude successfully.

    My .22 is cut to 12.5 inches and I have no problem humanely killing rabbits out to 150m.

    Exactly the same with my Brno no 2 at 12.5"

    Buy a Anschutz with the 14" barrel, you won't regret it…

    Buying cheap bud. Currently have an Annie 525 that is up for sale which I love but I fancy a change. I'm on a budget

    I have an old Brno 2E that was cut and crowned and threaded Valkyrie at 13 inches and it is amazing how accurate it is, bloody handy in the truck too compared to my 525 which needs about a foot of tube removing !!!

    In a similar vein, I have a CZ452 that I'm considering having cut down to make it a bit more manageable in a vehicle, especially with the SAK mod' on the end. Anyone else had this done?
