    short barrel 22.250

    HI lads how short is it practical to go with a 22.250 i want it to be handy for the 4x4 as well as stalking roe and the like.
    remy vsf lh im thinking 20"it has a h s stock on it and i might rebarrel it to a fast twist for heavier bullets.Any though on this would help thanks.

    A friend had his 22.250 cut to 19 ins with no problem other than it was noticeably louder.
    Personally I wouldn't go any shorter than this.

    Might as well save money and go .223. Once you go short your losing most of the advantage of the 22/250

    Mine is 19.5". Let me assure you, it has a fair bit more grunt than a 223.

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

    ​Maybe so but the .223 is not exactly under powered for our UK use and you still losing out on the 22-250's real performance with the short barrel.

    I chopped my 22-250 AI from 26" down to 20" and lost 500fps, i was running 3900fps with 52g A Max, i reckon a standard 22-250 will be about 200fps slower
    You will also need to change to a faster powder then usual in order to achieve complete combustion of the powder within the confines of the shorter barrel

    55 grn Blitzking at 3600 fps using Vit 140.

    It is surprisingly fast with such a short barrel and a 55g bullet, may i ask you the load of powder you are using?
