That is correct if you don't want to give up any velocity.
That is why I recomended the #4 @ 24'' for the 7mm Rem Mag for a "carry rifle" normally
for accuracy and ease of loading I would recomend a #6 or heavier for any magnum.
Light weight rifles are handy but they are not as forgiving as heaver barreled rifles, so I
also try to reduce weight in non critical areas like Scopes, actions and stocks and use heavier
Unless you are going to shoot beyond 600 yards I would give some velocity for a short,forgiving
This is just an opinion and others may disagree so build what you want and be happy with
it. That's what Custom rifle
building is all about.
