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

Just got a call from my Smith today. He's got my barrel on my gun. Gonna send him a few rounds to test fire it next week and then I can bring it home. I can't wait to get it back and start working on a load for this rifle. Then when October rolls around I can STW a Big Ole Buck!!!! Oh yeah I've finished up my range to 400 yards, I laid it out so that a little more work and I can get 500 yards out of it.. Not many places in South Carolina that you can shoot 500 yards, and to be able to walk out my door and do it is great!!!!!

Any of you guy's ever use or see a Titegroup rest? I ordered one up and I must say as far as craftsmanship it is hands down the best rest I have ever seen. Not to mention it works great!! Very easy to adjust and get set on target. The rear butt rest has a removeable starp so you can use it without it in or with it and it becomes like a lead sled. Great product.

Yeah, that is a great feeling. When I lived in Maryland, it was 473 yards to the edge of my woods. There was a dirt road that went to the woods, and I used it occasionally for target practice.
What barrel and action did you go with, and what twist! Once you smoke one with a STW, believe me, you are hooked for life. Awesome round, accurate, SHOOTABLE, and responsive. And most of all, DEADLY.

Thank you, and the reverse os true also. How are your little " sweeties" shooting since the " tune - ups" ? I am sure that they will be just fine. You made some very good decisions as to the investments that you made, and they will show up on paper, and in the freezers well.
I have a good feeling feeling on this one, that I just built. I am going to test it on Saturday. I processed 30 pieces of brass last nite, that I dedicated to this rifle only, just as the other ones. I'm going to try some 175 TSX 's to see what they'll do. The trigger on this thing is nearly as sweet as the 40 x trigger on my 700 P. Time will tell, and will post results. Thanks again, and feel free to ask if you need anything!! Take care.
Bob.
