Fine, that would be a minimum necessary condition for something that was
expected to extend fully. You should actually increase that so that in
such a case the opposite ends can't see each other. You need margins at
least as large as your largest cut-offs. You can see if this is a
potential problem by seeing if any of your monomers do extend in this
way. Your experimental system probably had room for about 10^8 such
chains end to end, so there is a chance you're comparing apples and
oranges here.

Has this force field been demonstrated to be effective for this sort of
simulation? If not, maybe you've begun to demonstrate that it isn't?
