sounds like a great plan... longest shot I can make at my lease is only 300 yards... I took my 16 in 6.5x55 out to 800 at your place(with your skills)

My CTR with Omega and anchor brake is 51". Not real handy but I still like it. If you want short and don't care about velocity, go as short as possible. 16.5-17" or so. If your can has a QD adapter, you could go shorter and pin that if you wanted.

Mine is 16.25". Even with a 8" can on it, it's handy.

I hunt with 120 A-max at 2715fps, and have dropped many animals with it. Furthest kill was a 200lb hog a tad over 400 yards, dropped him.

When cutting them down it doesn't hurt to have that extra .25 inch on the barrel like TexFlip did, makes sure if a LEO ever wanted to measure it no doubt it is legal
