Is the barrel lenght measured from the breech (with the chamber) or from the barrel throat (without chamber)? Thanks in advance for your input.:)

Bolt face to end of crown, or permanently fastened muzzle device.

with chamber

Except on a revolver...but I guess we're not talking handguns...we are in the rifleman's forum after all...

Correct, and this is why not all 16" barrels actually measure at 16". ;)
