My guess is the extra barrel length will only net you 100-150 fps but the trade off is a much easier handling rifle especially if used out west in the mountains where every ounce reduced is a bonus. My Weatherby's have the 26" barrels and I just don't care for them. Maybe if I was just sitting in a blind but to carry through the woods, not for me. Good luck on your purchase!
