My 22" sporter barrel is finally losing accuracy. I've been running a 53 VMAX at 3990 in it. I'm kicking around keeping with that bullet and getting a 26" barrel since the terminal performance is unreal. Option 2 is a 24" 1-8 twist for the longer bullets. I don't shoot over 500 yards since my property ends at 520. Most of the coyotes I shoot are inside 200. I also love not having ricochets using the VMAX. I'll worried the match bullets won't break apart as readily and there are cows everywhere.
