How did you choose the 270STW? That caliber still remains popular even in the wsm era, is it the bullet selection? It seems as though the 7mm has more bullet options and weights to choose from? That always puzzled me.

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

I found it for sale at a gunshop near me that deals with high dollar rifles. The price was too good to pass up, so now I own it. Under $900.00 I thought maybe the barrel was shot out but should last another 4-500 shots as long as I only shoot 3 then let it cool. Then I will rebarrel to the 7 STW as I really like the 7mm for hunting. The 165 Matrix at 78 gr of Retumbo was clocking today at 3075 fps and it looks like I can go higher safely.

I'm going to try the Matrix bullets too. I'd never heard of them until recently. I still like the partitions and the Gamekings shoot nice in my gun too.

I think I've rooted out the issues I've had with varying accuracy with my 7mmstw to the stock screws wanting to loosen up. One day it'll dump a sub one inch group at 200 yards, the next week everyone else( my other toys) is shooting an inch at 200 and it won't hold 2 or 3inches. I get home and the damn stock screws have loosened up 1/2 turn- just enough for it to walk in the bedding. I'm going to get some hex-head or torx screws for it and possibly re-stock to a laminate. That'll fix the issues I've had.

Lefty, I like the rig, your scope looks like a world war 3 futuristic telescope. How far can you see with that bugger?

It is a 8x32 x40mm Bushnell elite 4200-- set in leopold rings/bases(the beuhlers that were on it weren't enough and were retired)

The barrel on the rig is an unknown brand custom cut to 24".
It is in a standard bdl stock with a pachmeyer white-line pad and free-floated barrel channel

The standard safety is gone in favor on a win-style 3 position on bolt-- allows for easy bolt take-down also

The trigger is standard remington (walker group) tuned to 3.5# with zero creep, but I am thinking of replacing it since the safety has been removed-- any ideas??? --jewel-- rifle basix--?? do I even need a lh trigger anymore with a 3-pos. on bolt??
