R1 .270 WSM Pros/Cons of 22" & 24"


Recommended Posts

Both lengths are too short to achieve optimal pressures and velocities from the given caliber, so that's not a factor.


What's left is a question of whether you want a slightly higher muzzle velocity and better downrange trajectory, or a shorter barrel for easier handling in heavy cover.


If you're staying in NC, I'd say go with the shorter barrel.

If you're going to NM to elk hunt, consider the longer one.
