I think barrel launched KEM would be too constrained by the chamber dimensions of the gun
How so ? The charge need not be large. You want it coming out of the barrel at 600 m/s and then the booster taking it out to 1600 m/s at around 1000 metres range. If you want better performance you can use a longer missile and have it loaded further down the barrel. But then it will not fit in the standard storage rack.
