7600 Carbine / 22" bbl

Hello all, I already have my mind made up on a carbine, but would like to hear if anyone has any input on accuracy between the 2 barrel lengths. If any?

Meaning, Is the carbine any less accurate than the 22" bbl at 100, 200, or even 300 yds ?

You lose a tiny bit of muzzle velocity with the carbine, accuracy is the same. A remmy carbine is for fast action in the thick stuff, don't even worry about shooting long distance with it.

My carbine is every bit as accurate as my rifle at 100 yards. I don't do much shooting farther than that.

Alrighty then!

Shot my farthest deer with the carbine 200+ yds with 180 round nose bullets. Don't worry about a few inches of barrel. Mine is very accurate. If YOU can shoot it, it will handle reasonably long shots if presented even though it is not the gun you might pick if you knew you would get a long one.

My 18 1/2" Carbine is very accurate, more than it really has to be considering I bought it to hunt the thick stuff. It is one of my favorite firearms.

Re: 7600 Carbine / 22" bbl

i have found no difference in accuracy with carbines and rifles. if anything, theoretically the carbine may be more accurate due to the fact that it is free floated and shorter barrel would be stiffer but you probably wouldn't notice it. i have rifles and carbines and much prefer the carbines. get the trigger cleaned up a bit and it will shoot better than most people can.

I've made all but one of my 7600's carbines, that one was already a factory carbine 06! Cut three 35 whelens down . All accurate.

A little bit? You'll lose 100-200 fps. That is real world through the chronograph numbers, not some pipe dream theory.
