Cartridges such as .308Win, 8×57, 9.3X57 (also 9.3×62), 45-70, 30-06 can be cut, but a certain reduction in velocity must be expected.

There are of course other calibers that accept shorter barrels without losing too much speed, but the basic rule is to never cut the barrel on a Magnum caliber and/or if the requirement is the highest possible speed!

According to Swedish law, pipes shorter than 45cm are not allowed. It can be smart to cut to 47cm because then there is margin to make a new 15mm long thread if the original thread is damaged.
