    in the article the 30-30's only lost 60fps for a 4"barrel change thats a total 60fps lost for all 4"s

    It also said the supposed hard fast rule od 20-30 fps loss per inch is a myth as shown the 30-06 actually gained fps after having a couple inches of the barrel cut off more than once

    Thanks Bud...Great addition. I'm sure the accurate info will be appreciated. I did not think it would be very much loss.

    Gee maybe I'll hafta start looking for a shorty.

    With NATO spec 7.62x51 ammo, I'm usually between 2600-2650 fps out of a 8.5" barrel on my SBR the three times I've gotten to run it through a chrono
