EDIT 2- After seeing the other thread, I'm going to again point to the first part of my statement and withdraw. Sometimes the stuff that works in your head doesn't always work in real life. Good luck!
OK, I fit into neither of the groups of people you are asking, BUT, my thinking is that 14.5" middies run well, in fact, those who have that set up really like it (I'm STILL waiting on a LW 14.5/mid barrel from CMMG from like 6 months ago) , and don't seem to have any trouble. You are only losing .8" from a 14.5 and then you are adding the pig to increase cyclic reliability, I would venture to guess you will be GTG.
ETA: that actually sounds like a pretty cool setup, I'm gonna add it to the list for future builds.
