barrel length and berger 180 7mm

If some don't mind what barrel length are you guys running with the 7mag and Berger 180 grain bullet. Also what velocities are you getting. I emailed them directly but was thinking their data was maybe a little conservative and could probably do a little better. Their information was with a 26" barrel and was curious to see if longer was a little better. Thanks in advance..........

I would estimate that you could get well over 100 fps+ more MV out of a 30" barrel compared to a 26" barrel. Without firing up quickload, I would estimate ~30 fps per inch of barrel length beyond 26".
