Re: 7mm-08 22" barrel long enough?

A little longer than 22" will buy you an insignificant increase in velocity, but becomes a little less handy. A little shorter than 22" will cost you an insignificant decrease in velocity that no game or target will notice. If your purpose for the rifle is hunting, I think 22" is perfect for a 7mm-08.

Whether it is a 260 Rem or 7-08 a 21" or 22" will make you a happy camper.
I shoot these cartridges in 14" barrels-Accuracy is not a issue.
