I have built them from 20" to 26", all were AR's. What I found was it makes more of a difference what you are going to shoot than anything. The 1:12 twist barrels that I used I think a 22" barrel would do just about everything you could do with a longer barrel. But I have built the .204 and the .20 Tactical with a 1:10 and 1:9 twist and have found that an extra couple of inches makes a big difference on the heavier bullets.

No difference than any other caliber, you have to decide what you are going to shoot, and what is important to you.

While balancing on a piece of wood, two inches by four inches known as a 2x4, john and his friend sally both spotted a dalmatian inside a truck with sirens, headed to put out a fire. State what the 2x4 is made of.
