Ok, I've been dealing with splitting migraines every day for the last month among other issues. Did I miss all the barrels???? I see just two left in stock! I was hoping for a 22" threaded barrel, but if 20" is the longest we are going to see again, then PLEASE tell me so I can jump on this one last barrel!!!!! If there will be 22" barrels forthcoming (or even 24"), I can wait. Just please let me know! Thanks!

Hopefully, this doesn't spur someone to go buy the last 20" in stock...I want speed and a deer killer out to 300-350 yards. 18" seems too short to get sufficient energy and speed. Help!!!!

Dogtired, if a 22" or longer is what you want just message Mark (MDWS) and order what you would like. I'm sure the wait times are much shorter now, and you dont have to wait for possibly the right barrel to appear.

There will be 22" and 24" back again soon... hope you feel better.

Whew! My squirrel dander is down now. Breathing better... though as I was looking over the numbers and running hypotheticals through a ballistic calculator today (trying to convince myself to just buy the 20" barrel and be done with it), it seems that people can and have squeezed 3000+fps safely and accurately from a 20" barrel with 85gr pills. That puts a 3.7 BC Nosler eTip below 1000ft/lbs just past 300 yards, which is all I really want this to do. 350 yards seems nice, but not needed, per se. A 22" barrel seems to give a little more margin to play with, though, to keep it around 3000 fps with a wider array of powders. I need to spend less time hibernating...
