Green Mountain 24" or 28"



Log in to see fewer ads
I just finished a build with a 20" Green Mountain and a Larry Jennings Sporter stock and I'm pleased with the look and accuracy I'm thinking of ordering a Benchrest stock from Larry and ordering another Barrel from Green Mountain my question is what are the benefits if any to ordering a 28" over a 24" Barrel Here's a couple of pics of my build

Very nice build. I have a 28 inch and I love it. But it does take some getting used to. At 100 yards the Sv ammo drops like a rock. Iím guessing the barrel slows it down a bit. I donít think there are any benefits, other than it just looks awesome

Using CCI Suppressor ammo 970 fps with a 50yd zero I have to dial up about 69 clicks for 100 yd with my Anschutz model 64 with a 26" Barrel

Only if you're using iron sights, when it will give you a longer sight radius. Even then, most competitors in iron sight-only disciplines use a shorter barrel equipped with a bloop tube to extend their sight radius.

After it got broken in , itís proving to be a very accurate barrel. Because itís heavier itís less subject to movement from the the shooter. Itís not my most accurate barrel , yet but itís pretty close. Just swapped in a Brimstone BX, over the brimstone tier 2.

Itís harder to balance on the rest, but once I figured out that using my left hand on the top of the butt pressing it into the bag, vs unsqueezing the bag worked best , it Shot really good groups. Also it likes wolf or better ammo.

So far the most accurate GM barrel Iíve got is the Running Boar
