You dawg, you scored big time! Those things shoot very well! A friend of mine owns a model 70 Winchester Sharpshooter in 7 STW. It has a McMillan stock, and a Schneider barrel. Talk about making you drool! Your set up is what I would like to end up with. I am building one from scratch. Read the thread previous to yours. Nice catch, enjoy, and welcome to the Brotherhood!

AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL, 7 STW.

Butterbean, was this the Winchester Laredo that was on Gunbroker? Your gun does sound nice.

I have always liked the Laredo's and Sharpshooters, just have never owned one. I do have two Featherweights though, a 7mm-08 and a new stainless 30-06.

As for Elk, you might want to step up to a 150gr or heavier bullet. I have only shot factory loads in mine, but will soon start to get a load developed for mine. I am hoping my gun likes the 150gr Nosler E-Tips.

For the hogs, either of those should be good.

The first thing the gunsmith told me to do is "you better scope it to see if it will shoot first, I bet that 338 will shoot". Guess what? That rifle shoots almost as good as my built rifles, so I left it the way it is. I will cut a whitetail to pieces if you don't watch your shot and I have learn to really like the caliber.

Im a WinMag fan ........Id leave it be Brother and find another to take apart

Butterbean, it is amazing of what you can find at times at the local shop. Most around me don't have guns like that

Hope to hear more about it soon.
