as far as sanding and re inleting how much material can u remove i alreaded sanded it once but it still touches bad at the tip what i can tell is that it touchs the barrel the whole way. scope is a burris which i am not thrilled about and want to change but im not gonna spend a grand on a scope if this gun wont shoot to my standards
changing bullets may happen on my mind is lrx 145 and ct. i use ct in my pump and every deer ive shot is drt from 35 to 270 yards. i need something for deer shots ranging 25 to 450 im open to any ideas as i reload and am a 7mm nut four out of my eight rifles are 7mm
Try the 150gr Siroccos. The are not at all temramental about things like OAL and seem to work extremely well in the slower twist factory barrels.

So too did the Hornady Interbonds always perform very well for me.

I ran both pretty hot but I can't remember the exact load as it's been quite a while since I loaded for 7mm Rem.

Thanks, that makes sense, I'll try that. I'd like to get a standard repeatable style of breathing rhythm when I practice.

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

Im getting ready to build another STW, I had one i put together last year in a TC Encore platform. It had a 28" full bull shillen barrel 1;9 twist with 6 flutes, a set of custom laminate stocks, a trigger job and topped with a Zeiss 6.5-20x50. I had my best groups out of it (.42") with 140 Berger VLD's pushing 3600fps with IMR 7828. I had someone make me an offer on it and regret selling it. I have a savage 110 long action that ive been thinking of rebarreling to another STW but im unsure or what i would need to change the bolt head to to accept the stw case, and is there any aftermarket extended length magazines for the savage?

Here are a couple of pics of the encore:

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

Thanks guys, sounds like a fun group! I love this caliber, just wish I could use it more often. I live in Indiana but my last chance to use it was in Wyoming last October to take a mule deer. You might cringe at my bullet choice but im an avid benchrest shooter and came up with an awsome load for this thing.
Im a big fan of the Matchking bullets and thats what i Used on the Muley, I got some scoffing at the 130g projectiles but its a one hole gun and did the job quite well!

Awesome job with the Thompson. She's a real beauty. Stock looks cool and the barrel is scary! I'll bet it hardly kicks.
