Also, for now, it is wearing a Nikon Monarch' 6.5-20 AO Target model. I am going to put a Leupold 6-18 AO target in a few weeks. But I can shhot it like it is for now, and do some load tinkering. ( maybe even a little whitetail sniping next month). The brass that was used to proof fire it is perfect. No lines or shiny spots on the body, which indicates a smooth chamber. Pix may follow. Thanks to all that have heard all the blow by blow updates. Take care to all.
7 STW,

I like it!!! Nice.....I looked at buying a Bobby Hart Stock ERT,or the Same LRT that you are going to buy. they are really cool looking and quite functional. I was lening toward the Grey/ Black laminate. I really like that color.

I ended up buying a Take of H-S Precision off of a Long action Old style Remington Sendero with out the palm swell. I have small hands and it seemed to fit better. It's a really solid stock and fit well in my budget.

That's a really clean looking rifle and I'm sure it will do fine. Did you have the action trued as well? What other work done???

Congrats, Now that's 4 kids in the STW family right???

Yup, that makes it back to four, but I am loading for five. ( my sons), which used to be mine. Any who, my original stock sendero HAS the stock, you have, and I love the way it feels in my hand. I have fairly big hands, but it just feels right. My 300 had the palm swell, and I hated it. On recoil, because my index finger was now more forward, the bolt knurling would rake across the top of my trigger finger, and leave a bloody gash. I still have the scar. That was usually in a hunting situation only not the bench, so when I bled, something else was USUALLY bleeding MORE!!!! But on this stock, which is borrowed from my 700 P , 7 mag, it dosen't do that. I am looking forward to the Bobby Hart LRT stock, and the 6-18 Leupold. I put the scope on layaway last week.
I did not do anything to the action. My smith did a quick, but thorough check, and said it seemed to be square, and the lugs were evenly seated. I knew that anyway, because I bought that gun last summer, as a potential 7 RUM build, then sold it back to the gun shop when I bought the CDL. ( big mistake). But the action is in great shape, and slick and smooth as can be. That's wry I bought it to begin with.
This barrel is exceptionally smooth, and has a double radius crown. That means, it has a 11 degree recess, and is chamfered
at the muzzle at about 45 degrees. It's a nice set up. I'm crossing my fingers, but I think, and feel like it will got into " the family " just fine. I'll make it shoot!!! I just have a good feeling about it overall.
Thanks for the feed back, and I hope all is well. Take care Dano1.

7stw,

I just got off of the phone with Butterbean (really nice guy by the way), He just talked me into a Lee Factory crimp die, which I just ordered! He got me thinking that it would lower my ES and help with more consistat ingition.

Lee only wants $20 to ship one for a 7STW, soooooo. It's on its Way!, Thanks Butter bean.

Can't wait to see the Bobby Hart stock, What color you looking at???

Dan

I'll second that notion about the " nice guy business", and we have also talked about the crimp die as well. There is some validity to the ES thing,as it does somewhat equalize the clamping load on the bullet. What we all want is consistency, and that pushes things that way. I have a set for my 308' and my 300 win mag. The only prob is that they are BOTH shooting so well, I'm not changing anything. I think that as in any other aspect of hand loading, once you find the " sweet spot" on the crimp, you are golden. Too much is dangerous, too little is useless. I have some brass that I think would respond to the crimp die. The A- Square brass loosens up after about three firings. Pockets are great, but I'll bet the crimp die would even them out some. HUUUUM, Butterbean, you've got me thinking about them now!!! Thanks, something else to buy!!! Hummmm!
