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

7STW,

Would you measure your Win. mag box length and advise what it is, please? Looks like the box on my Mod 70 338 maxes out at 3.60----a bit shorter than my Rem Sendero 7STW box.

Can I make the Win 70 work for the STW without going for a longer box???

140 or 160 Accubonds?

140gr on 81gr or 82gr of rl25 depending on brass. Never really worked with 160's.

Thanks!

I've bought 3 boxes of the 160 gr Accubonds from a fellow LRH member and looking forward to loading these and comparing them to the 162 gr Amax. I'll also load some more 140 gr. Accubonds too.

It will hopefully be a good day at the range seeing how those loads will do in my Sendero 7mm STWs!

Buy the Ballistic tip blems for your load dev. and save the expensive Accubonds for later.

You measurement is correct. My mag box is just over 3.610. I ban get away with 3.645 in my Senderos. The Winchester is shorter, but it still shoots. You certainly can use the m70. By all means do!!!!
