I've been saving up toward a 9.3x62. I've wanted one for years.
Now that I'm getting close, I'm starting to look at specific rifles.
I'll handload for it, and I'm wondering how much difference in muzzle velocity the barrel length is going to make in this cartridge? It's a pretty efficient cartridge design, and there's a lot of data for moderately fast powders, so I can't imagine it will be a very big deal, but I thought I'd check in.
If I were to get, say, a Sako 85 carbine, with a 20" barrel, what would I be likely to give up in muzzle velocity vs. a CZ 550 American with 23.6" tube? (Let's assume a 286-grain bullet, for sake of consistency).
