Re: Contour and barrel length suggestions for 7mm RemMag
I have a light 7mm RM with a 24" barrel. I loose a little velocity, but it's 8lbs with scope and bipod! I have no problem getting a bit over 3000fps with the 160gr Accubond and 1/4 - 1/3 MOA groups if I keep the barrel cool. I shot a .19x" a while back from the prone position at 200yds. I wouldn't mind the barrel being a bit longer, but this is my pack anywhere rifle and I like having it handy.
I can get 3100fps with the 24" barrel, but it opens the groups to 3/4-1" at 100yds.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
