    Rifle companies don't understand Physics? or is it all marketing?

    I see it time and time again... a rifle model will chamber the .243win and it'll sport a 22" barrel yet the 7mm-08/308 will come with a 24" barrel. ie., a .243win needs more barrel length than a .308 Maybe customers just expect a .243 with a 22"? or for kids? handiness? I dunno?
