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

I use today Nosler 140 BT bullets , Fed. 215 primer, Rem. brass, Vihtavuori N165 powder 80gn OAL 94mm. 3450-3500 fps. Start loading from 77gn to 83 but 80gn is very accurate.
MRP powder 80gn was also good. Have not try any other powder. Hard to get RL and Hogdon powder. Local gun dealer is selling Vihtavuori power and MRP

Next step is buying March scope 8-80x56 or 5-50x56 to use on paper and long range shooting.
I like the Zeiss 6-24x72 what I have today when Im hunting. He is soooo bright and clear . Nothing like Zeiss

I think that those stocks that Stockys has are short actions. Are you talking about the Bobby Hart stocks? I THINK they are short action only. One of those would be nice. I have shot a friends rifle, who has that stock, and they are nice! I too am bedding block fan, but bedded pillar blocks work good too. That is what I WAS going to do with the new build. Actually, I may pillar bed it any way.

Man, that is a smokin rifle, and a smokin reindeer!!!! Oh yea' nice shot too! But then again, look what you are shooting! I have never shot VN165 before. I have shot the VN 170. Very , very clean, but I think it was a little TOO slow, even when near compressed, and with 168 Bergers. I did notice, however that that the ES, and SD were very low, and it was accurate. Nice job on all accounts, and Welcome to the Brotherhood!!!!!!!

AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL, 7 STW

P/S, You DID !

I stand corrected on my previous quote on the stocks. They are avail in long action. I like the ones with the block, but the LRH version is on sale. That opens up another avenue....... I had not visited their website in awhile. Thanks.

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

...appreciate the comments guys.

Fred Ea: I didn't mention it in my first post (this is an STW thread after all) but I also have my STW's younger sister, and - since you mentioned it - she's a 270 (2005) in even (very slightly) better condition. The STW and the 270 were originally owned by the same guy. ...and there was a third, a 300 Win Mag, but somebody else got to it before me. That's OK though - the STW was the real prize in my eyes. The 270 is my next project and will belong to my #1 grandson some day. He's 20 months old so I have a little time to work on it (haven't done a thing to it yet).

...love both of my Ruger twins... ...but the STW is my babe.
