after a lil research i can get a 32 inch h&r bbl you can put a scope rail on it too


i figure 22 inch bbl i have after conversion 20 inch bbl


so after a conversion 30 inches of bbl

I am sure you will let us know..................Now back to the original question. LOL

It all depends on whom is evaluating you, LOL.

I don't know you personally, but from everything that I have read on here the short answer is "YES!"

Long answer, as FULLDRAW said, "I'm sure that you will let us know." It sounds like a really cool project.

Slufoot will cut and crown the 32" barrel down to whatever length you want. If you do a little research on Doug's you'll probably come up with the same conclusion I did. 24" is about all a Smokeless 45 needs to reach full potential shooting saboted loads.

I toyed with the idea of having him cut one to 24-26" and keeping the drop so I could full form. May still do it. Think I'm going to sell my Savage after this season and go to all 45s. Kind of a pain in the butt to keep up with 50 cal stuff and 45.

Just wish they would make a stainless barrel that long on the H&R's.

I thought the twist was slower on the 32 incher?

Maybe I just have it confused with something else.

You are thinking about it backwards Lade.

Build around a projectile.

Don't expect the longer barrel to make up for your bullet's misgivings. There may be an initial speed advantage with (a), but you could be screwed by another projectile (b) with a better b.c.

Find the perfect bullet for what your objective is and design around that.

And that advice is good for rifles as well as mz's.
