Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner
Ya, I understand the lefty problem. I am a lefty, but right eye dominant. It really sucks at times. I also grew up with all righty's.
Just by reading this, it looks like most are shooting Remingtons, with a few Sako's and Winchesters. I am a big Winchester fan, but I also like a good single shot too, as I bought a Ruger #1 stainless in the 7mm stw. To bad that most companies don't make a gun in this round anymore. It is great, but the Ultra Mag's have hurt it.
For me, the recoil is not much more than the 7mm Rem Mag that I had before this. Accuracy for this rifle has been ok, but I have not done any work to it. Still the factory trigger. The biggest change was the scope rings, as the factory Ruger ones with the caliber sucked. They twisted on me, so I put on Millett rings.
Now, my plans this year is to get this thing working like clock work. Get it sighted in good, then shooting like I want (under 1"), and then take it on a good hunt. And if time permits, start working up some good loads for it. The two bullets that I am looking at are the Nosler E Tip and the Barnes Tipped TSX bullets in 150 grns. I feel these would work good for just about anything that I would hunt, from whitetails to elk, maybe even moose.
