Looking for my 1st AR for a walking varminter. Shooting groundhogs, calling predators, & target out to 300 yards. What could I expect in accuracy from a Vmatch 16"? Also would I be better off getting the 20" barrel & possibly having it fluted to make up the weight difference? That way I get a little more velocity & flatter trajectory. How much velocity loss going from a 20" down to the 16"?
I like the looks of the shorter barrel, but don't want large muzzle blast & noise either.
Go easy on me I'm an AR virgin :D
Appreciate the help,
