    Assume you were going to buy a new Bushmaster and you were going to use it for target shooting and woodchucks. What barrel lenght would you choose and why?

    Results (total votes = 49):
    16" shorty 6 / 12.2%

    20" 24 / 49.0%

    22" 7 / 14.3%

    24" 11 / 22.4%

    Other 1 / 2.0%

    I would prefer the 20" Bbl. as the sight radius of A 24 is negated with scope, and the velocity gain is negligble,and the 20" heavy Bbl. seems to balance better between hands, for carrying and offhand stage in High Power Comp.

    The 20" barrel is a good choice. Using a 16" barrel limits your shots to about 300 yds. I don't think the 24" barrel is allowed in NRA Service Rifle Competition. So get the 20" .Btw, Bushmaster is a good choice.

    upper w/ 16" barrel fits in average backpacks... imho, massively portable. i'd love to find somewhere in p.r.k. to shoot more than 300 yards to test that out.

    There was a range there in the mid 1970's. Could be gone now. I'll bet San Diego has a gun club or two with a nice range.

    I'm checking into it. Lived down there a few times, before during and after my Marine service.
    As of 10yrs ago, nothing but crap. A little dumpy indoor range on I (J?) by MCRD / Gen'l Dynamics, and a nicer indoor range way up in the Northeast County.

    Back in a bit with the scoop, after I here back from my "Man in Amsterdam".
