TxH - I don't normally subscribe to the longer barrel theory after having a go myself with the 26" barrel in my .308
I intend on doing some serious research before I buy, but I don't want to pack a 26" if I don't need to do so.
No doubt the round has "legs" for days, and I want to take advantage of that, but I don't want to put together another 20# gun.
I'll look into the numbers though and definitely let you know what I come up with. I already have Brett running a scenario for me on an AR's effectiveness at 800 or so yards, down angle, in PNW conditions.
