I'd like a 308 with a longer barrel too.

Why did Ruger decide to put a 20" barrel on the 308 instead of a 24"?

Although the difference in bullet velocity between a 20" and 24" barrel is not enormous, it seems to me that the higher bullet velocity of 24" barrel would be better for a rifle marketed as a "precision" rifle that will be used for target shooting.
