It was a guess. That barrel looks like a fluted standard Palma contour. A standard Palma cut down to 27 inches will weigh about 5 pounds. Flutes will remove about 6 ounces. Hanging a muzzle brake on it will add most of that back.

Shawn,

We run the 180's just touching the lands. The throat design is a little different and would be way hot for a SAAMI chamber.

This is the 4831 SC or (Shortcut) they are supposed to have different burn rates, but I don't know exactly how much of a difference it will make.

Re: New R Bros 7RM

Yes i was wrong, I recently retested mine again with a Magneto Speed chrony and mine is getting 2920fps with 25" barrel. The first time I shot over a Pact chrony I saw 2758 fps and it was close to Bergers load manual I never questioned it. I kind of thought something wasn't right when my drops didn't match actual shooting.
