Cold bore shot

In a cold, fouled barrel is there some rule of thumb as to point of impact or is it different for each firearm?

Pretty much each rifle has it's own set of rules. I have been lucky enough to own some rifles that didnt have much of a problem down to -10 F. Some others of mine were very unpredictable in 40-50 degree F., others had cold bore shot issues that were more predictable. The best thing to do is get to know each one of your rifles.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

It's not predictable.

For a hunting rifle you have to work up a cold bore load so you'll know where it'll hit.
This is where cut rifled barrels shine.
