what is the optimum barrel length for a 22LR?

--- Quote from: TexDaddy on April 26, 2015, 02:11:01 PM ---As far as the optimal barrel length goes:
Most Ruger 10/22 have a 18.5" barrel. (The current models do range from 16.12" to 20")
The Marlin Model 60 has a 19" barrel.
The Henry Classic Lever has a 18.25" barrel. The Henry Golden boy has a 20" barrel.

So, it must be about 16.12"-20".  ;)

Seems like a reasonable assessment.  Then decide based on need. Is weight or maneuverability a concern?

Ballistics by the inch is a great resource!
