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

Would anyone know what the twist rate for a Model 70 Stainless Steel 7mm STW 26" would be? Thanks.

    [QUOTE=purpledragon;692799]Sorry guys,I listed my 140 load its 81grs. I got to thinking and went to my book where I should have gone,before spurting my mouth off.My 160 load is 78.5-79grs. depending on which of the three rifles I am shooting it in.I will never leave the stw,but I have to keep three batches of brass one for each rifle as I fire form and neck size for them.........Again sorry for the misprint........PD......you guy were probably thinking "this damn fool is going to blow something up...........[/QUOTE

    yeah, the thought had crossed my mind!!!!!

    To all the Brethren here, if anyone in the Brotherhood is looking for a nice STW to add to your collection, check out the classifieds here. Our " Brother in Arms " , Butterbean has a real jewel for sale, and to be totally honest, if I had the cash, I would DAMN sure buy it for my collection. Maybe we can at least keep it in the " Hood".
    Good luck Bean, it won't take long!!!

    It is very tempting. The gun looks very nice, just wonder how much my wife would kick my butt for that?

    It is a rifle that I always wanted too!!!!
