Re: Hog gun project....

Looks very nice. How will that affect recoil with a shorter barrel?

Thanks..I'm sure there will be a lil more recoil..not much....I have a 742 carbine in 30-06....It has an 18 in barrel....The recoil is very minimal....This one being 308..I think would be no problem....

Please update with a range report as i'm wondering how the shorter barrel will affect gas pressure going to the action and what results from it.
