What is the correct Depth dimension for Nema 3R/12 NQ Panelboard enclosures? Is it 6.5'' deep per Digest 176 , Page 9-7 , or 6.25" per the Engineering drawing PBA711 ?

Issue:
Engineering drawing PBA711 shows Depth of MH**WP box as 6.25",  and the 176 Digest lists the MH**WP panel box as 6.5"D , which is correct?

Product Line:
NQ Panelboards

Environment:
Plant Engineering drawings

Cause:
Clarification of Plant Engineering drawings

Resolution:
The 6.25"D represented on Drawing PBA711 is is correct if measuring from inside backbox to the inside of the front trim. The Digest 's 6.50" D represents measurements taken from the outside back of the box to outside trim/Door , thus the .25" Depth descrepancy
