There was one in 270 on the classifieds the other day. I wanted it bad bad, but my gun budget is BLOWN.

Mossy Ag,
The no.1's are very nice, found one in 270 at the Birmingham gun show that was a blued action and very clean with hardly any wear marks on it for 600. Almost bought it but I found a Remington 870 Wingmaster in 16ga. And couldn't put it down instead. I will own one one day, if I find a stainless one, I will find a way to get it. I thought 600 was a fair price, the man that had it said it belonged to a friend of his and it was a shooter. I would like to own one in a "different" or special caliber like 6.5x55 Swede or 7x57.

Butterbean, my uncle has one in a 6.5-25, 56 mm lens. Natchez had them on sale, and in stock last summer, so he bought one. I was surprised at the clarity, for the buck. His is a " Buck Gold". He paid $189.00 on line in the clearance section. It gas a fine cross hair. Not bad in a pinch.

Well, quick trip to the range today. 76.5 gr of RL22 got the velocity I wanted. 3100fps out of a 25" barrel with 162 amax. Problem is that the bolt got sticky as well. Guess I'll just have to be happy with 3050.

RE: New build, update. Guys, I have scored big time. I finally received the barrel today that I bought from "longhauler" from our classifieds. Well, it has a new crown on it, and the bore is tight, smooth, and no roller coaster feel when you put a tight patch in the bore. Externally, it is in excellent shape. I will clean it up with some Flitz polish and it will be pretty as a picture. Now for the next part. I am considering removing the barrel from my 300 RUM Sendero. That barrel is a shooter, and has a habit of being fatal to the existence of the whitetail species, when pointed in there general direction. However, I am by heart a 7mm aficionado, from way back, and am at least considering replacing it's barrel with this beauty. If I was to do that , I may or may not sell the barrel. The RUM is accurate as $&@?, but it just don't have the finese that the STW has. I bought it new in 2006. My first sendero STW, is the original, without the palm swell. I obviously have not "pulled the trigger " on that idea yet, but am considering it! What do you think?

AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL. . 7 STW.
