I have done my research online, talked to some precision rifle guys, and if you ask five guys you can get 7 answers. I have seen guns that shoot well everywhere from 16-28", and solid arguments for most of those sizes. But I cannot sort enough out, and you guys are good at being honest, and explaining shit.
This article is nice, but has some gaps (e.g. jumps from 26" all the way down to 18") and is still but one example. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.c...locity-and-accuracy/
Specifically, I ask because I am going to get my PSS threaded (probably by GA Precision as I can drive over there) to take a brake/suppressor mount. Expect to mostly shoot with the suppressor after that.
While I am at it, and adding that much more to the muzzle most of the time, do I have them knock a bit off the end? If so... how much???
Gun is: Remington 700 PSS, 26" starting length, 6R, I believe 1:12. I live in KS and mostly shoot therefore between 600-1200 ft altitude, at least for now.
Today it shoots around (legit) 1/2 moa with Fed GM308M2, which is a tidge better than the '09 LC M118LR I was previously shooting. It can do more like 1/4 moa if you handload but I do not do that really, so let us talk of it no more.
Would like to optimize for long range, such as it is for .308. Used to do 168s, but this holds that accuracy out to 900 at least with the 175s. Hoping as early as this spring to do more formal shooting, get to some "local" PRS-format matches and try it (and myself) out. Say: 100-1,000.
