mines nothing fancy. It was a bdl stainless syn with a factory muzzle break. I put it into a grean/grey lss laminate stock, floated and bedded it, ajusted the trigger down to 2 lbs and it wears a 4x12 leupold vx2.

I'll be selling the stock thereafter.

I'll post my gun pics shortly. Maybe tonight. I have a stiller predator action, jewel trigger, and Broughton 26" # 5 contour sporter barrel. It's a shooter.

Also, I have a connection for brass and was thinking about doing a group buy, maybe 5000 catridges. Anyone interested in joining in?

Thanks,

Ed,
I would be enterested and both my hunting partners in the your brass deal. What type of brass is it and the big question is price. We are in AL. , pretty lonely down here when it comes to the 7stw. I haven't spoke with them yet , but I am sure they would want 200 to 400 pieces each. Please advise.

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

It's good to know that there are others out there that love this great round also, it is a spectacular round and I am amazed at what it will do at long range.
I own two rifles for now, both Remington 700's, built the first one in 1995 on a 700 action that was a 7RM. I took the rifle to my gunsmith to rebarrel with a 28in. stainless custom barrel to gets more velocity with 160gr. bulllets. When I got there, he introduced me to the 7stw and the rest is history.
The first rifle is an accurized 700 action with a 26in. stainless #5A Douglas barrel bedded in a plain ole adl Remington plastic stock topped off with a Leupold 3.5x10x50 vari-x III held on by 2 piece dual dove tail rings and bases. This rifle will shoot whatever you put though it and shoots 1/2 moa constantly with anything.
The second rifle is an accurized 700 stainless action with a remington 26in. barrel rechambered to 7stw bedded in a plain ole plastic Remington stock topped off with another Leupold 3.5x10x50 vari-x III. This one doesn't shoot as well, but will shoot under a moa with 160gr.AB's and is a lot easier to tote when hunting. This rifle seems to have a "fast" barrel and likes hot loads. 78gr. Of IMR7828sc with 160gr.AB's. I will chrono it soon to see.
Remington is doing their best to kill it and I can't figure that out at all, it is a better round than the 7RUM and hopefully we we haven't hitched a ride on a falling star or another flash in the pan not being able to get brass, but I guess there is more than one way to skin a cat when it comes to getting brass.

I'm always interested in getting brass for my Sendero 7mm STW. Who's the man., i.e., Remington, Winchester, Nosler...?

Thanks!
