I've had barrels cut and recrowned , never a 444 tho.
Wilson Combat did my work , and I was most pleased with all they have done.

The muzzle blast on that would be a female dog.

I think the 22" barrel is fine, but that's my opinion. I imagine some may want a shorter, handier rifle. But even at 22", the entire rifle is less than 41" long. I still find it a handy size for in the woods. (That big tube is weighty though, but hangs nice for offhand shooting.)

Before you do it, make sure you intend to keep the rifle as it's resale value will be very diminished.
