Thread: What length barrel for 22-250 + mod?

  1. #1

    Question What length barrel for 22-250 + mod?

    Going to get my 22.250 Ruger M77 Mk2 threaded for a mod and as it has 22" barrel I was thinking about getting it chopped down a little.

    I was wondering what length you guys would recommend, I will be using an A-Tec CMM4 sound mod?

    Cheers

    Mine is barely 20". Probably a little short.

    Depends if you are going to carry it more than shoot it. If it is going to be mainly a fox rifle from a truck I would not go much shorter than it is, may be 21" minimum.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    i would keep it at 22 inches mate. if your shooting factory ammo and want to keep the fps speed up. if you reload then you can get some of the speed back by using a fast burning powder.

    Mine sits at 20" with a T8 and is about right. With the A tec being a little lighter I think I would agree and keep it at 22". To get top velocity you need 26" but the round is travelling so fast even at 20" it makes no real distance.

    Does anyone recognise a significant increase in muzzle flash with short barrelled 22/250's. Would have thought there would be a bit of unburnt powder about. I guess the mod may contain it all though

    There will be more blast with a shorter barrel but your right the mod contains it.
