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?
