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

Well, this addiction called STW is getting more expensive. I have been considering a custom barrel and other mods on my Sako 75, then today I came across a m995 TRG-S in 7mmSTW and I bought it up. Should be here in a week or so. Now, I'm not sure which one I will modify.
For years I have wanted to modify a factory rifle, but just never could decide on a caliber to play with, well I've finally found it.

We should change the name of this thread from the brotherhood to STW's anonymous.

I'm Fire306 and I'm addicted.

    Your load is never rising. The scope is angled down. The bullet is always dropping. If you want to shoot deep you shoot be running some sort of ballistics software that allows you to see the relationship.

    I concur .......The instant fhe bullet leaves the barrel gravity takes over and the bullet starts dropping ....as Lycan said the scope is angled down and the tube is angled up the bullet will cross the scope plane twice As he said you will need to run a ballistics program to see this in full effect

    I've got a custom stw with a 28" kreiger barrel at 1-9.5 twist. I do reload for this and have shot pretty good groups. I use 168gr berger vld 76.4gr of h1000 3.615 coal. What are y'all finding is the most accurate out of y'all's STW? My loves bergers, accubonds, and sometimes AMAXs. I'm not a speed freak, I want accurate. I use this gun for hunting deer anywhere from 50-800 yds.
