The one thing that I have learned about owning multiple guns in the same caliber, is that even though they are the same caliber, and in your case, and mine, the same gun,that is where the similarity ends. They each may end up withdiffernt presonalitys, or tolerances. In my case, one will only "shoot" 140's, the second likes 150's, and the Sako likes, loves 160's. That being said, and as I mentioned to another member of " our elite group", ( ha ha ) , you may even want to get another set of diesand dedicate those to the new gun, and that gun only. Another thing is keep the brass separate also. This is particularly true when you are dealing with belted magnums, that you have the resized backed off a little. Once that brass is set to your gun, and the dies to the brass, if you chamber it another rifle, it either chambers hard, ejects hard. I have had this happen to me with a couple of seven mags that I have. I have two, my son has one, his brass got mixed up with mine, and it would not chamber in mine, until we realized that the bullets were for his gun, and sized differently. Any way, contests on the new score, and enjoy it . All the best!!!

AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL. . 7STW.
Thanks for the advice about having a separate set of dies for each rifle and keeping the brass separate for each rifle too.

Yeah, I think I made the right decision this time. I ALMOST took the barrel and the 300 ultra to the gunshop one day this past week. I had both in my hand, and something said NO. Later I mentioned it to my son, and he was relieved that I did not do that. He said that he understood why, but that gun has a great history, and I think that he wants it someday. I am putting a VARI- X 3 , 6.5-20 AO on it when I can get it put together. Bought it used but definitely not abused. Will be using Leupold dual dovetail bases and rings. The action on that 7 mag ADL synthetic is mint. He put it aside for me today, and told me that when ever I can pay, that will be fine. ( I do a lot of business there). I almost took the ulra mag out today,instead I tried out that 300 LSS, that I was going to use. Man, that thing shoots! Glad I didn't make that mistake. Anyway, thanks for the words. And yeah you are right, if you rush you will make a bad decision. I almost did, TWICE. Thanks!

I can't wait to get it, I'm taking them both to my IWLA gun range and compare it's shooting capabilities to the Sendero 7mm STW that I already have. Then I'm probably taking all 3 of my rifles to a gun smith that was recommended to me by a member here to have some tweaking done, i.e., jewell triggers, on all three, bedding job for the 257 weatherby, skim bedding job to the Sendero I have now.

I'll probably put another Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP EBR-1 MOA Reticle scope on it because I absolutely love these Vortex PST scopes!
Gamehawker, just wanted to give another congrats on your new rifle. I did a search last nite online, and the rifle that you bought showed up, caption and all, "mint condition" I definitely agree with that statement. That thing is as mint as they get. P/S, I wrote " congrats" on my original post, and spell check corrected it to contests. OOPs, didn't see it until today. Any way, beautiful stick there dude! Enjoy!

Thanks!

I am real excited to get this rifle and the icing on the cake is what has already been done to this rifle. I quote from the ad:

"bolt & lugs lapped and bolt trued (blueprinted). All custom work done by Gruning precision. 26" stainless fluted cryoed barrel, stock trigger that has been tuned. The standard hard rubber butt pad was replaced with a Kick Ease pad. While the H&S stock is aluminum bedded the old design was lacking so it was also aluma bedded for a rock solid platform. It has never been hunted and has less than 100 range rounds of reloaded recipes put down the pipe. Comes with Forster Bench Rest Die set reloading dies , 40 rnds of brass , box of 20 federal factory ammo, manual and hard case to go with it. I have the perfect recipe for this gun. The harmonics of the barrel are beautiful and with my custom loads it is common to put the bullet down the .25 MOA at 100 yrds, and within 4 inch groups at 700 to 1000 yards."

All of that gunsmithing work and all of the accessories have to add up $$ wise to at least $300. And it is a Remington 700 Sendero SF too! I called Remington already and gave them the Serial # and they told me it was made in 1998. My other Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STW was made in 1997. I think those were the times that Remington was still making great guns.

Yeah, I am definitely real excited!

I don't know yet. The seller told me he would include the load data with the ammo and accessories shipped box. When I get it the load data I'll share it.

The Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STW that I got earlier in the month I bought from an estate sale. The deceased Uncle who owned it only shot it around 5 times. His Nephew who was selling the rifle said that his Uncle loved the gun but it was just too much (recoil) for him. That Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STW is pristine too!

Wow, it has been quite of month of amazing acquisitions for me!
