"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."

F-Class Tactical shooters and service rifle shooters shoot the AR out to 600 yards.

Like M58 posted, a 24" bull barrel with twist rate matched to bullet weight (those I have spoke directly to prefer 70-something weight and up for that distance), loaded with the right burn-rate of powder and you can do some real tight shooting.

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined...The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun."~Patrick Henry

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

I'd get it in 1 in 7 twist to handle heavier bullets at longer ranges. Between the 20"-22" (probably my choice) and 24" I couldn't say. What I would say is that you want a free float handguard, as without a free floated barrel you're pissing money away.   Which ever route you go it won't be cheap. Don't skimp on the handguards, the glass or the trigger. Good luck.
