never say never

Let me add that shorter barrels should be slower than longer barrels and that is an accepted line of thought. The opposite, that longer barrels are faster is the other side of the coin. But as in many things in out hobby, there can be exceptions.

I've got a 20" Mark X Mini Mauser that is aggravatingly slow. The OP's 16-18" velocities are about what I'm getting from the Mark X, despite 2 more inches of barrel. I've taken to shooting 40-45 grain Hornet bullets from it to get the velocity's I want.. A 22" Remington .270 barrel is also slow with 130 gr slugs, and I'm experimenting with 110's in it. That bore is a terrible copper fouler too, and might explain part of it's problem.
