Need help on Barrel info

I recently Laybuyed a Zastava M70 7mm rem mag,I mainly plan to use it for target shooting out to 700 yards,It has a 610mm light barrel and have become concerned over this barrels competency on long range capability,I understand after 2 or 3 consecutive rounds the barrel heats up and losses accuracy,I wanted a 7mag for its long range potential, have I handicapped myself buying a light barrel ?or won't it matter to much,say over a 300-700yrd fullbore shooting which consists of 10 shots per session. Any help would be appreciated.Thanx, Ryan

Few people would consider a light profile barrel for 700 yard shooting. I would definately want a heavy profile.
