Hi Guys, can I have some feedback on what you consider to be a good short length barrel? I have a 3 Position Anschutz 1913 rifle in a 2213 alloy stock with a 690mm standard Anschutz black barrel. I am considering getting a shorter barrel so I can: a) move the centre of gravity back for a better standing position so the rifle is not so nose heavy, b) add a long alloy barrel tuner so that I can tune the barrel and keep a long sight radius for the peep sights. I have seen a lot of benchrest rifles with short barrels (I reckon some of them are 500mm or so and they seem to shoot good groups. I was thinking of getting a thick fluted barrel. Obviously accuracy is everything but does the barrel have to be long to get the best accuracy or could I go to a much shorter barrel to achieve my goals. Your thoughts?
