If there's such a issue with that length, why do they seem to be the standard length barrels manufactured?
The only issue with that barrel length is you'll lose some velocity. Manufactures are making them in that length because that is what sells best. Most people would rather have the convenience of a 22" barrel over the added velocity that you'll gain from a 24 or 26" barrel.

Are the rifles now manufactured any differently where this isn't as big a deal that it used to be, that seems it could be plausible?
+1 for D47's response.

Has anyone shot the Savage TH-XP 116 in 25-06?
I've not shot that model/caliber.
