Ideal .30-06 barrel length?

The shortest .30-06 I have ever owned is 24". I am about to rebarrel one and am thinking about dropping to 22", possibly 20". It will be a deer hunting rifle with max range of 600 yd. (please dont go into ethics of 600, enough threads about that.)
Sierra 165 Gamechanger will be the bullet, assuming barrel likes it. How much velocity loss between 24" and 22"? 20"?
(In advance, I dont want to build a .30-06 AI or a 308 Win, or a .300 WSM, etc.....)
The rifle is bolt action.
