I"m certain it would be fine. Particularly if it fits her needs.I wonder the exact same with my 338, so i went 23". To add odd numbers seem to fit right here

26" will gain the many out that the cartridge. I heard somehwere that you shed approx. 25-30 fps because that every inch reduced listed below 26". Don"t understand it that"s true or not, together I have never chono"d one with a much shorter Bbl. 보다 26".Best,JM
The Chosin couple of November to December 1950, Korea.I"m not among the Chosin couple of but no more remarkable group of Americans ever existed.

26" will obtain the most out the the cartridge. Ns heard somehwere the you lose approx. 25-30 fps because that every customs reduced below 26". Don"t recognize it that"s true or not, together I have actually never chono"d one v a shorter Bbl. Than 26".Best,JM
fastest 7 Rem mag i have ever owned was a 1995 mod 70 SS classic with a 26" barrel. The shot commonwealth Premium 160 grain(factory load) partitions over 3100 fps. The conditions the day of the reading were temps in the high 90"s and 100 % humidity(central Florida) . Because that time ns have had actually 24" tubes on all my 7 rem mags. The 24" tubes through the exactly 160 gr lots are in the mid 2900 range. I was getting 2850 wh 7828 160 gr partition the end of a remington 700 KS chambered in 280 Rem. All will work.
Mine is 23" and also at times ns wish that it was 24 or 25". Once I put together a 280AI i left the barrel in ~ 25" and also it is much an ext pleasant come shoot and also the velocity between the 2 is very similar. If not sure start long and also cut ago after you have used it for awhile and also are certain you desire it shorter.

I"ve had actually "em in 24" and 26" lengths. Present 7mm mag is a Ruger Number One through the 26" tube - i really favor that rifle... Preferred load over the years is a 160 gr bullet at 3000 - 3100 fps, back I"ve offered heavier and also lighter together well. With a high-velocity smallish bore magnum, a 24" barrel, or longer, simply seems to make sense. Regards, Guy
Well friend just finish up through a 280 through a most noise and recoil. Execute it if you want to, the video game is not going to care all the much. If i was walking to do that, i would simply shoot a 7 x 57 that i have. The 7mm RM is best with a 24 come 26 inch barrel in my opinion.
I would agree 7mm Rem is in ~ it"s ideal with a 24" to 26" inch tube. But it"s your rifle, carry out what floats your boat. When building my 7mm Rem ns went middle of the roadway at 25"....
I"ll agree v the others. 22" will be louder and also velocity will be less but not noticeable on game. I like 26" barrels on magnums and don"t discover them cumbersome but my existing 7mm mag has actually a 24" barrel. That shoots itty bitty groups and my load matches my ballistic reticle perfectly out to 600 yards so ns am happy as the proverbial clam.
cooperfan,If girlfriend want an ext noise 보다 a typical 7 Mag and also the exact same performance as a .280 Remington go for it. A 22" barrel will still have actually the "impress factor" when you call folks, "I have actually a 7 Mag." and also the game wont know any difference.But the barrel will understand the difference and will stay out much faster than a .280 walking the very same velocity.
Yes - also short. Diminishing returns are realized below 24" in velocity. I"d sooner have actually a lighter .280 or .270.
I have had 7 mags in 26", 24" barrels and also my current 7mag is 23", If i were come build one more one now it would be 23". As far as noise, when I"m at the variety I usage ear plugs, as soon as shooting video game I never notification the noise. And also I deserve to assure you it is quicker then any type of 280 remington, which I have actually owned in 22", 24", and also 26" barrels.
