Unless you are living on the extreme edge of performance (like me ) the answer is no. Most long bbls are for increased velocity and the 24" doesn't do a whole lot for that either. And you have an extra 4" hanging out there ready to get caught on something, and you have to buy a special case, etc etc etc.

As a newb here I myself have been contemplating a 20" Bushy Predator/RRA Varmint A4 or the 24" Bushy Varminter/RRA Varmint A4.....So the extra 4" is "wasted space" unless I plan on shooting @ targets > 600 yards?

Out of curiosity; whom here has 1 of the rifles mentioned above & how does it shoot?
