I see where Franklin Armory is offering a 11 1/2" Bushmaster barrel. How good do you think the result would be in that short a barrel? Twist I 1-24"

Just looking around with nothing better to do and found it.

Thanks,
Greg

In the QuickLoad modeling program, factory Hornady ammo will go do from 2175 fps out of my 20" rifle barrel, to 1939 fps using an 11.5 inch pistol barrel and your wrist will do down 1/2 inch in length. ;)

I hear ya there Hoot! I was just wondering what the ballistics and accuracy would be from something like that. I went out and shot my new to me 18" TC Katahdin 450 Marlin rifle today. I thought that would be a A** kicker. I was pleasantly surprised. Recoil (speaking for myself) was very enjoyable.
