Re: 7mm Rem mag barrel length?
I "had 7 mag" The key word is had. The case isn't big enough. I aquired one of the original 7 STW's before it was a comercial round.
I did lots of chrono time with my 7 mag and when it was popping the primer the 7 STW was 150 FPS faster and not even stressing.
Not everybody likes packing a 28 inch barrel, but I do. I don't even have a brake on my .458's I use the heavy gun idea to stop recoil. Big barrel and straight stock.
.270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.
