this is where we can post our gun specs, talking about different load data, where to find our hard to come by brass, and just any other general 7mm STW knowledge

If it is your first post in this thread, lets start out by stating the specs of your 7mm STW(custom made rifles - describe all components), list scopes and other accessories on the rifle, and how long you have been with this caliber. Pictures of your setup would also be welcome

I hope this thread becomes a useful tool of information for everyone,

Enjoy,
-Matt

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

I had mine built last year. I absolutely love it. Since having mine built I have let a couple of friends shoot it and one had one built and another is having one built. Mine likes anything I shoot through it and my goto load is 162 amax over 79 gr rl 25 at 3300 fps.

Specs are:
Broughton 5c 1 in 9 light palma contour finished at 30 in before muzzle brake
Remington 700 action blueprinted trigger set at 2 lbs
Remington lss stock glass bedded
Leupold vxIII 4.5x14x40 cds

I used it to harvest a deer at 570 yds DRT
A buddy used it on a 150 yd headshot...NASTY
Another buddy used it to shoot a deer at 817 yds. It flopped then staggered about 60 yds before collapse.

600 yds three shots 1 inch squares

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

I like the stocks you guys have. Where might I buy one for my stw? I have a stiller action and a #5 contour Broughton sporter barrel 26". I need a magazine system too. It shoots great, but it's an STW!

I don't really like my HS precision stock or hinged bdl floorplate.

I have a jewel trigger too.

I must get a new stock!

Help...

Mine is a Remington Sendero dealer special run from 1997.I recently bought a Remington LSS stock that had been channeled out for a heavy barrel.It fit my 7mag Sendero perfectly.So now both my Senderos wear laminated stocks and they feel much better to me than the H.S. stock.

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

I bought a Model 70 Win Super Grade in 7STW in 1998. Being a wildlife biologist in South Texas, being able to harvest deer at long range is a necessary tool. I got over 2,000 rounds out of the first barrel before the accuracy fell below acceptable standards. I rebarreled with a 5 contour Lilja 1:9 twist finished at 28". I used to use Nikon glass, but recently topped her (Emmy, as we call her) with a 6-24x50 Sightron LRMOA. I've always shot 130 SMK's with a charge of 80 gr of 4831SC moving 3550 fps. I trade the higher BC of the larger heavier bullets for the extremely flat trajectory of this pet load. I sight in +1.75" @ 100, and from 0-400 yds, I don't have to worry about dial ups or hold overs, just center it in the shoulder and take the slack out of the Jewel. With 20.5 MOA up, I can consistently shoot 6" groups at 1K, despite the lower BC. And, this load has proven to be a brutal killer at 400-600 yards, with my furthest kills coming at 815 and 835 on consecutive shots. I have harvested over 200 deer at 400+ yds, and they rarely take a step. I'm 1 of a group of 5 loyal STW lovers that all use the same load. I often enjoy the recoil reduction in my 6.5x284 and 260 Rem, but when I head west to mule deer or elk hunt, or when I can only carry 1 rifle, there's no question which one it will be.
