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

Built me a 7mm STW on a Rem 700 spss 7mm mag. Got Dave Kiff to make me a tight neck match reamer and NZ Trueflite barrels to blueprint my action and to chamber and fit a 27inch barrel with a 1in 9 twist. The stock is a Mcmillan hunters edge and the trigger is a jewell. Scope is a Leupold LR PR 4.5-14x40.
This is a lovely rig to hunt with as it only weighs 8.5 lbs and range shooting is not a problem as the recoil appears to be no worse than the old 7rem mag.
My long range load is Rem brass with Fed GM mag primers and 84gn ADI 2225 with 162gn A max @ 3350fps.( Warning do not use this load in any other rifle.This load is right on the edge in my rifle and the only reason I'm using this load is that the next accuracy window is right down on velocity.)
Spook and shoot mag load is Rem brass with Fed GM mag primers and 82gn ADI 2225 with 160 Nosler accubonds. This load shoots with in an inch of my long range load and is fine out to 250-300yds ( Warning do use this load any other rifle.
Longest kill is 830yds

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

I have a STW built by a gunsmith from Georgia. He built it for me about 5 years ago. Its on a 700 action with a shilen #4 contour barrel. He trued the action. I already had purchased a stock from MPI and installed a jewel trigger. Thus far with H4831 with 140 accubonds to 3/4" sometimes a little better to 3440 fps but settled on h1000 with 160 accubonds and 168 bergers. Accubonds are at 3212 and averagfe .75 to .5 at 100 yards same with bergers. Love this gun. It was topped with a 4-12 swaro but switched to the Leupold CDS. Will have to post some pics later. Thanks for starting this thread..

Blacktail, sounds like a nice firearm. Put up a few pics when you get a chance.

Well, I am currently out of stock of any 7mm's in my string and was going to do a regular 7mm rem mag build but thanks to you gents I have totally changed my mind and am definitely going with the 7mm stw. Thanks for feeding my sickness.

Good choice, the STW will significantly outperform the rem mag if top performance is what you are after.

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

RE, New STW build. Well as I said a few days ago, I picked up the 700 LSS in 300 win mag. My barrel is suppose to arrive tomorrow. My problem is, I can't bring myself to dismantling this LSS. It is absolutely gorgeous, and the factory barrel is mint. As I stated prior to this I was going to utilize the stock and the action. I am having really bad second thoughts about it all. I am sorta thinking now that I am going to keep the LSS, and look around for a " boner" and utilize it. I know where ther is a ADL synthetic in 7 mag that can be had for about 400. I guess all that staring at the LSS in my work shop got the best of me. Any thoughts? Now I need a action and possibly a stock. Options please!

AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL! :
7 STW.
