I just bought a Ruger #1 in 6.5 Creedmore. The rifle has a 28 inch barrel and from what I can determine this is what was put on them at the factory. Why such a long barrel? I would think 22 inches would be sufficient to burn all the powder, my 264 WM is 26 inches and takes a lot more powder. Is the length to help with accuracy?

Cause many of the Creedmore fans think it is a long range cartridge. So it makes them feel good smile. In reality though, no real reason. But it is a good one for collector value
