What kind of a barrel are you using? Chrome lined are not as accurate as unlined CRM or SS.
Yes it does if you are talking extremes like a 6" and a 20". The topic here is a 16" and a 20". The bullet is just as stabilized out of the 16" as the 20".
While we're on extremes would you think a 40" barrel would be more accurate than a 20"? Or might you think the shorter one would be more than enough to stabilize the bullet and the 40" would be overkill?
I maintain that a 16' barrel is more than enough to properly stabilize the bullet.
Your 20" shoots amazing groups...well I think it would be just as accurate if you chopped off 4".
What barrel am I using? I have more than one. My most accurate barrel is the ArmaLite 20" AISI 416R Stainless Steel triple lapped heavy 1:8" twist on my M-15 National match rifle.
I never said chrome lined barrels are more accurate.
