    Its not. its basically an old wives tale that lives on where a 308 HAD to have a 20 inch barrel to be effective, only now its 6.5cm HAS to have a long barrel to do well. All barrels can do better with a longer barrel but there becomes a point where is a longer barrel practically if you are only shooting to say 800

    a short 13.5 to 14.5 will launch a 178 ELDM at around 2450fps to around 900 Yards with about 2.5 mils(79 inches) of wind at 10mph
    a short 14.5 to 16 inch will launch a 147 ELDM at around 2450 to around 1100 and at 900 yards has 1.8 mils(58 inches) of wind at 10mph

    at 900 yards, a short 6.5 will have almost one less human wind drift than a short 308

    a typical 20 inch 6.5 will launch a 147 ELDM at around 2600fps to around 1300 and at 900 yards, has around 1.6 Mils(51 inches) of wind at 10mph

    Just with everything else, there are trade offs, I used to be all about longer barrels, but as bullets have gotten more efficient, I came to the conclusion that shorter barrels make more sense for me.

    For the record the Ambush .308 has an 18” barrel.

    Anyone get one yet? I have not seen any reviews yet. I am thinking about one. I have a few DD and I love them all so this looks pretty slick. One thing I did not like is that apparently you can only get barrels from DD since the way they attach to the upper is unique to DD. I was debating on getting one then when the barrel is shot out throw a bartlein on there. I shoot a lot so a 6.5 will not last me that long.
