I see .300 RUM's for sale everywhere, and I'd rather rebarrel with a 28" barrel than possibly rechamber a 7mag barrel. But will pick up a 7mag if that is the easiest conversion and just get me a new barrel.

This 7mm STW Sendero currently on GunBroker looks like it is in awesome shape! I have a 7mm STW Sendero with close to that serial # (I confirmed with Remington mine was manufactured in 1998) and it is a tack driver.

I just happened to look on reloaders nest for 7 STW and saw a load for 82 gr rl-25 with 180 vld. Is this possible? I am shooting 73 grains and while it is not max I find it impossible to go up that high. any thoughts?

The Ultra Mag series uses a larger bolt face than the other mag bolts. Also, the feed rails are a bit farther apart.

Better to start with a std. magnum action, 7mm Rem, 300 Win, etc.

There is a beautiful looking Sendero in 7stw for $750 on Armslist.com. It was just posted a couple days ago. Seller says it has 69 rounds through it.

well after a good cleaning floating the barrel and adding shims under where the stock screws on i reloaded berger 140s with reloader 22 and winchester mag primer coal 3.74 went to my camp and shot 1 inch minus the bullet dia and its sub moa. at 100 yards the bergers had inconsistant tips some angle a little some are square i ran a needle down the hollow point and some u couldnt. i seperated these ones for expansion tests since some say bergers dont perform. i will be switching bullets in spring and doing further testing for long range accuracy.

My 140 Berger's expanded, no doubt. They pretty much exploded like a varmint bullet! I was told by someone at Berger that their bullets shouldnt be pushed but to around 3100-3200 Max, I was pushing around 3600 hence the explosive expansion.

In your photo are we looking at the entrance or exit wound?
