Anyone chronographed the Creedmore in a shorter than normal barrel?

Thinking of going tactical with one, but not sure about chopping off that much barrel length.

There is a thread going on over at snipers hide about this right now. Maybe it can help you decide.

You will lose more velocity per inch than a 308 but it all depends on what your velocity goal is. I would think a 130 in the Creedmoor will get you 2800ish and a 140 2700ish. This is based on what I have seen with the 6.5x47 which is similar. I am sure you can over pressure and achieve more velocity but that lends problems. I run a 22" barrel on my 6x47 and run a 105 hybrid at 3000, down 150 fps from the original 3150 with the 26" barrel.
