Measuring barrel length?

Is the barrel length on a rifle measured from the bolt face, or the end of the chamber?

Thats what I thought...

But, the spec sheet for my rifle says 24", and it measures 26". I think I will email customer service, there was probably a change somewhere along the way.Thanks Guys
