Shooting at higher velocities will require additional/more cleaning than shooting at lower velocities, due to more lead particulate breaking up and higher frictional forces as the projectile is forced down the bore.

 

Your 600mm barrel likely only has the twist towards the muzzle/crown where as the 700mm barrel likely has rifling the entire length  of the barrel liner, which means even more frictional forces as the pellet has to twist the entire length of the barrel opposed to just the last few inches. Just my 2 cents on the matter! HTH.
