Default Weatherby Vanguard Carbine

dont know if this is an old subject, dont log in every day, I am thinking about the Weatherby Vanguard Carbine in .22-250, I know it has the 20" bbl and will affect ballistics, muzzle blast etc. does anybody have one, not necessarily in this caliber, but pros and cons compared to a regular 24" Vanguard. thanks.

Just some info I didn't know before investing in a 22-250. If you do your own reloading, 22-250 brass only lasts maybe three reloads, then it's pretty much toast. With that said, everything else I buy will be in 308.

Edit: Vanguards are awesome. I've read in a few magazines of guys putting up half inch moa with shelf ammo and only decent glass!

Does that have the bull barrel? If so they are very heavy so the 20" would be a big advantage over the 24" in weight when trying to take aim.
