Thanks for all of the input and replies. I have not totally made up my mind yet, but I am leaning towards the 7mm mag.
As far as barrel length goes, I thought I read somewhere that the longer sleeker projectile from a 7mm needed a longer barrel (28") to properly stabilize the rounds? It sounds like some of you are happy with 26" barrels?? What about muzzle brakes
...are they needed on a 7mm mag?
