I was speaking from an ammunition performance standpoint. In that case you are gaining nothing from a barrel longer than 16". I mentioned sight radius in my original post. And stated it's why Olympic...

I measured the suspect Winchester Super X ammo. It has an OAL of 1.334". The CCI ammo that chambered easily has an OAL of 1.328". And just for giggles I checked a box of Federal 50 Gr. Hollow Points...

Marlin 883 Hard Bolt Closing.... Sometimes ??

Back in 1978 I bought a new Marlin 883 in .22 Magnum. It has a Walnut stock, gold trigger, and is all blued steel and wood. I mounted a nice, but inexpensive Tasco scope on it with Weaver mounts,...

Muzzle velocity will of course be the highest, and most impressive with the lighter 150 Gr. bullets. But Magnums like the .300 Weatherby and Winchester shine their best at longer ranges from 400...

I've never understood those light bullet weights in Magnum cartridges. .22WMR included. Light projectiles bleed off velocity too fast. The .22 Magnum performs better with 50 grain bullets, than it...

Opitmum Barrel Length For .22 WMR ?

What is considered to be the optimum barrel length for obtaining the highest velocity in the .22 WMR cartridge? I have always read that for the .22 L.R. it was 16". And anything over that resulted in...

Cerakote is little more than high tech paint. I know they claim it isn't, but it wears no better. It's the reason I went with Stainless Steel on my Tisas Regent. I've seen where a lot of guys were...

.22 Rimfire Magazine Loaders ??

Over the years I've tried several of these. Most of them end up in the can because they either break, or get chewed up because they're made from too soft of material.
