    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".
