What are you using those powders in? I have used 4198 in a 222 years ago, and it worked great. ?????

Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

NEW BUILD UPDATE! , hi guys, just got back from gunshop, and my barrel action is together. Now, there is one little caveat, and I mean little. He cleaned the threads, and screwed it together, and got PERFECT headspace. He said it was absolutely dead nuts perfect. The only thing is that because the barrel was already stamped, the lettering is not in line with where it usually sits, meaning that the words , 7mm STW, on the left side are just under the edge of where the side of the stock is. He said, that it can be corrected, but it will involve cutting new threads, running a finish reamer through it, and another 150 bucks. Which in turn, means a shorter barrel. I opted to leave it alone. I will get the barrel engraved on the side, after I get it back. Otherwise, it looks great, and I took him my stock from my 7 mag , 700p, just so he can test fire it. Also took him some ammo. Paid in full. Will pick it up the beginning of next week. My son graduates high school this weekend, and I will be toooooo busy celebrating!!
I don't think the deer will mind too much if the writing is a little crooked, do you? I have decided on a Bobby Hart, LRT stock. It is a laminated, target style , similar in looks to a " A5". for now I am going to use the 700 P stock. The stock can be seen at Stockys website, under Bobby Hart, ( keyword). It is pretty cool looking, and feels good in hand! Take care to all, good shooting!!!!

What have you guys found to be the best twist for 150/160 grain bullets?

I had the gunsmith check my rifle/barrel twist on my Sendero 7mm STWs. He said that both of them were one in 9 1/4.

Yup, that's right, they are! But they still stabilize heavy bullets, and I believe they would even at 1-10.
How are they shooting now, or haven't you had much tome to shoot.
I am coming down your way next month to do a little crop damage control. I think I am going to break in the Sharpshooter, over on the eastern shore! Lots of critters there!!! ( as you well know). Take care .
