Dude you have been here long enough to know damn well that it is entirely up to you and depends what you want to use it for and how portable you want it, blah blah blah...

Use your head man. Cut the chamber to how you like it then worry about a barrel after that.

hmm.. im surprised that you actually don't know that, seeing how long you have actually been with this site. i have an equation you can use, just take the volume of your barrel and multiply it by 3, then use this equation to get the height of the chamber.

height=volume/(pi x radius squared) basically h=v/(pi x r^2)

hope this helps :wink:

You've been here ~74 days and you still havn't found the damn search function?

Nevermind that I'm pretty certain we've discussed this at least one time other than this in the past couple months...

At the very least, you could have shown up <i>after</i> thinking about the matter a little bit.
I'm discusted that you guys think we're going to spoonfeed you your entire life. Stop being a baby and fend for your 'ing self!
