Moderated barrel length vs noise level 223

Recommended Posts

Would you expect to notice a difference in noise level from 16 in to 20 in barrel in a moderated 223?

is there any correlation to noise levels vs barrel length in general ?

Ok must be a stupid question? let me put this another way. 

re barrel length if i was to get a new 223. 

My 223 has a 17in barrel, it has what I think is a good mod (aim sport Zonic Compact mod) I have had comments from other 223 users that the gun is loud compared to theirs. They all have standard barrel lengths probably in the region of 22in . Could this be because of my shorter barrel?

Thanks Sam

Thanks. Love a short barrel but the point of the 223 is that it would be a quiet option   So a longer barrel  this time
