But also the longer the barrel... You loose accuracy due to the barrel resonating with greater length.
All those folks winning Palma matches with long, skinny 30 inch .308 Win barrels not nearly as stiff as a 22 inch featherweight hunting barrel getting 1/2 MOA average accuracy at 1000 yards will win any bet you choose to make about that.

It doesn't matter what frequency any barrel resonates, whips, wiggles, vibrates; each one does it exactly the same for each shot. They all are very repeatable in this regard.
