    223 varmint

    Hi , was toying with the idea of having my barrel chopped on my Remmy 700 varmint h/b to enable a bit more room in vehicle and carrying etc ? , my concerns are will it loose velocity and will it affect range ? It is currently threaded and houses a wildcat pred8 , any ideas ? And what prefared size would be appropriate ? Cheers

    Hi there I have a remmy 700 well 3 actually my 223 1 in 9 twist has been reduced to 20 inches screw cut with a Atec over barrel mod , in a bell and Carlson tactical adjustable stock , I use 55 grain v max for the foxes and this rifle has shot over 400 in 4 years !!! So earning its keep ! I regularly shoot 300 yards and 500 on the range using 69 grain seira bthp . It shoots in my mind better than the factory 26 inch barrel , it has also been re crowned magazine conversion etc . 243 and 6.5 47 lapua also shortened to 20 inch with no detriment all heavy barrelled , cheers David
