Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

Ha! ....face palm.
Thanks for the clarification!

Here is someone that tested 4 different 7mm Rem Mag at various barrel lengths....by cutting the barrel off.
He made the rifle for this purpose.

Not a great deal of difference/loss in velocity.

Different rounds can have different results.The main thing is bore capacity.If your squeezing a small pill with a lot of powder behind it,every little bit of barrel length counts.If your shooting a big bore with a lot of powder behind it,cutting 1,2,3,4 inches off doesn't hurt velocity that much.
