I think you are exactly right. It seems to me that a shotgun reaches 90% of its maximum velocity at something like 22 inches. My Dad, the aeronautical & aerospace engineer with a recent minor in ballistics, gave me more info than I could retain earlier this year while I was shopping for a new gun. You aren't loosing anything other than swing, just like ks_waterfowler said.......ks_waterfowler said:You lose very little range and power with a 26 inch barrel. The only advantage that a longer barrel has it that is is easier to swing. You are probably losing 15 fps if that.
:huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: How do you check the velocity inside a barrel?? :huh: :huh: :huh:spartina said:"Also max velocity of the shot is reached somewhere around 20-30" from the end of the barrel "
Is that inside our outside the barrel ?????
