Just curious what the velocity gain is (if any) when using a 24" barrel over the standard 20". Thanks

Anyone? Can I at least get some guesses or even some sarcasm?

Don't have my chrono data in front of me, but off the top of my head the 20 inch will run around 3200fps and the 24 inch will be around 3400.

The reason I'm curious is because I want to build a varmit rig. So if velocity is neglible, what is the appeal of the 24" varmit barrels from RRA and Bushmaster?
