    Doc Watson done a shortened RM not sure if its a pig either though.....try 16 or less for a pig and I'd say the RM is completely wasted in that format

    Doc W's 7RM was 20" and very nice indeed. I probably should have bought it when I had the chance

    My 7RM (bought off DW) is either 20 or 21" barrel and runs Berger 168s at 3050

    mate im thinking some of these loads must be warm considering barrel length. ive got a 23 or 24 running 2225 162 amax 2964fps. 73.5 grains in a tikka t3. no idea
