So far I only got:
Nitefinder - 3 1/2"
Titan - 20"

I need to know what barrel length and material will get the most range for the Max Shot, Big Bad Bow, and the Longshot. Thanks in advanced.

Max Shot: See my mod. It will go into detail on a nested brass barrel that gets top-notch results.

BBB: I think 1' of 17/32" brass works best.

LS: Find Angel's mod for the best. However, there are many variants of it. It really depends on whether or not you are using a modded breach/bolt system or not.

It depends mainly on the dart foam and barrel material. Since you've told us neither, we can't help you specifically.

In general, I would use 10"-12" for a Maxshot, 8"-10" for a BBB. Not sure about the LS, though.

Barrel length works differently on how the gun is modded.
Many things factor in when choosing a barrel length.

For example: On Doom sayer with the 2 additional springs its works out great when the barrels are 12 inches.
However. If I left the stock spring the darts would only go about 12 feet. So obviously 12" barrels are too long.

As far as a Titan goes, I found that 24" works best for me, my foam and my barrel material with the 20 pumps that I use.

Things that factor the range, accuracy, velocity:

Barrel material
Barrel tightness
Stefans foam
stefans weight
power of spring(s)
seal of plunger head
weight of plunger rod
How many pumps
plugged or unplugged.
Good or bad barrel seal.

and also:
Wind
weather
humidity

It would be ludicrous to state the best material for All Titans or All Nitefinders is a certain length.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

This is what bolts.niper came up with when he made his f.a.r. Its the big complicated formula but he explains how to use it.
