    But which barrels perform the best (accuracy @ 1000 ft/s plus) in the high power .20 cal game, the Lothar Walther or the HW barrels?

    it's a right job for mythbusters....

    i have played with both barrels for years and found no difference with accuracy with JSB and EJ at hi power... but with H&N baracudas... the HW barrel is the disaster... totally can't group...


    1030fps

    They're both accurate... I have both barrels and the main differences are the diameter for with the Lothar is 5.02 (inside bore) and the HW is 5.00 (inside bore). So the HW is a slightly tighter fit. The HW is also longer by at least 5 inches which will without a doubt increase your power.

    From all the researh I've come across u gain about 10-15fps for every inch extra in barrel lenth. A year or 2 ago Boondock and Guido discussed this in a thread.
    If u devide 1000fps by 24" = 41.67 fps per inch, obviously there needs to be a basic barrel lenth from where the power curve climbs slower if u add on inches.
    Seems there is a 23.8" LW barrel...

    why not get a 32"? can do fishing with it also... lol


    i got 26" HW barrel 2 years ago... only for target use... not practical in the field...

    becoz it's too long... plus silencer even much longer.., with sling on shoulder... the silencer will touch the ground some times... i think max 24 inch is fine...

    with correct gun or setup... a 20" .20cal barrel with do enough damage to shock u... pm me if u wanna details...
