I have finally selected my Sako 75 varmint rifle in 22.250 caliber to rebarrel to 6BR. I appreciate all the advice I have received on this message board. I am going with a Pac-Nor super match stainless barrel with a 1x8 twist and contoured to duplicate the factory barrel dimensions - muzzle diameter of .865". The factory barrel is 24 inches long and I was going to choose a 26 inch barrel for my 6BR. Most of my long range shooting will be at a local 500 yard range however I do want to try my hand at 1000 yards at some point. Am I better off selecting a 27 or even a 28 inch barrel instead of the 26 inch? I will be using the factory stock.

Thanks again for the advice
Jim

James,

I like to finish my barrels up at 25.5 inches. In a light gun it's easier to balance that way. I'm still running over 2900 fps which will keep the bullet supersonic at 1000 yards. Unless you have a big heavy rifle I think the longer barrels can be a hinderance.

Bruno's and Sinclair both keep blanks in stock for a 26" finished length so that's an advantage. 25.5" does seem to be an accurate length too. But if you get a 29-30" blank and finish it at 28", you can have it set back and still have enough length. Something to consider. Lynn feels he gets more velocity with a 30" but we think 28" gives good velocity with a standard case. Richard Schatz is getting 3030 fps with a 26" barrel and Reloader 15 in his Dasher. The 105 Bergers, 105 Scenars, and 107 SMKs all like 3000-3050 so 26" can work--with the right barrel.
