Default The Remington Model 7 with a 22 inch barrel

I beleave it was only with the magnum loadings like you 300WSM but I did handle one in the store and liked the balance with the 22 inch barrel. The rifes felt much lighter with the 20 inch barrel versions. I think that Remington may have also changed the barrel contour between the normal short action cartridges w/20" and the short magnums w/22". It is a shame they didn't offer the 7mm-08 with a 22" barrel in the Model 7.
