I see alot of integrally suppressed Remington 700 bolt action rifles around in the .300 Whisper caliber.
Im wondering how deep that barrel must be bored to achieve a sastifactory suppression, and I know that in a suppressor, volume is everything.
I figure that on the 1.250 O.D. barrel that seems to be common, the most you could have on the I.D. is probably 1 inch and that would leave an 1/8" thick wall which would be the least you could have and still have enough for a threaded cap.
So...the machinist in me wants to know....
just how deep are those things bored ?
On the typical 22" barrel, is the bore as long as the rifling or what ?
anybody got a clue ?
