My STW is a rechambered Stainless Sendero 7mm Rem Mag. I've been shooting the 7mm STW cartridge for about 12 years now. I just dropped off a 700 LSS today to get the 7mm STW treatment. My gunsmith has built several since he did mine years ago. Mine was the first he did. He still shows the three shot group I gave him when I was first developing loads, with three 140 Ballistic Tips in 1.403" at 300 meters using 7828 powder. We thought that was pretty decent for a factory barreled hunting rifle. My hunting load these days is the 160 Accubond behind RL-25 powder. Consistent 1/3 moa at 400 yards.
Merry Christmas fellow STW fans.
Cornfield Flats, first of all, Welcome to the " Brotherhood". I have came to realize, that once you fall in love with the STW, you are hooked for life, and no one can talk you out of it. It sounds like you have the multi- gun sickness that a few of us here have too. That is some mighty fine shooting, and a mighty fine rifle as well. ( rifleS, that is ).
This web thread is testament to it's worth, and the fact that Remington is now offering brass again is something too. Wouldnt it be great if Norma or Lapua would introduce it? That seems to be the only if any issue right now, is a consistent brass source, that is good, and lasts awhile. I have had great luck with Winchester brass, and am on my last 2 boxes. Your powder choices and bullet weights are spot on. 7828 for the 140's, and RL25 for the 160's. Perfect .
Well, happy hunting, and shooting, and have a Wonderful Holiday Season.
