Would a 22" barrel be too "blasty" in the chambering? 24" is all I've run and would like to go shorter, but not too.

I'd slow down and look at the BIG picture.

Mainly how .25's suck.(grin)

I've had 'em in 21,22,23,24 and 26". Pass the 22" 224 Speedmire......................

Finally got around to chambering last weekend. Went 24" and have enough 100 grain bullets and RL 19 to abuse it for a good while.

Hoping for the Maiden Voyage this weekend. Expecting 3350 fps with 100's and RL19, which I have plenty of. 57 grains of 19 got me there quite some time ago. I expect this Bart & chamber to do it with less powder. I'm kissing a 100 nbt at 3.215 with the reamer I used. That seems shorter than the last ones I had, but I just can't remember for certain.

It's a point and shoot rig. That is for sure. I'm still excited to see how it groups.

Yes, that is a Craftsman YT4000 in the background. No, it's not for sale.

56.5 RL 19 & 100 nbt @ 3.200" = 3310 fps and good accuracy. I quit there. All loads shot decent aside from the first 4 sighters, which were a bit squirrely.

POI is the same with all charge weights tested. Should be a good "grab and go" rig.
