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

I have a Model 70 sporter classic in SS. It came with a synthetic stock, but I am in the process of installing a Timnry trigger and putting it in a salt and pepper laminate stock. I have a Bushnell 6500 4.5-30 scope to put on it. I have shot it a few times to break in the barrel and it shot inch and half groups with Nosler 150 gr. ballistic tips and a scope that I had put on it just to see how it shot.

There is a local gun show coming up in April. I will probably see something there. I feel better now about NOT sacrificing that LSS. I recently traded my 700 BDL stainless synthetic in 300saum, when I acquired the Sako 7 stw. So, I had a " hole" for a "300" anyway! But this one looks better. So I am back into search mode. The barrel should be here tomorrow. As far as the stock, what do you guys think about the BC medalist? I sorta wanted a laminated, thats why went with with the LSS. Who makes a really good laminated? Boyds? Thanks to all.

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

Butterbean, I assume you are talking to me. I like RL22 - 7828, with 140 grain bullets. They just seem to work well together, and velocity is smokin'. I Have had very good luck with 7828 with 150 AB, CT, and BT. I have been experimenting with Retumbo, and H1000 recently. I am not pleased with the Retumbo as of yet, however, I like the H1000' with the 162 AMax. However, I may return to my favorites, which are 7828' and RL22. they also shoot well with the 162-168 bullets. If I had to pick one, I would go with RL22. have fun, be safe.
