Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner
Rem's have been very flaky in quality lately as 7stw and a few others have said; they don't give a damn about anything but the $ anymore. I've seen a few stellar ones and an equal number of crow- bars. Do you really want to drop a K $ or more on a rifle and scope to only be able to use it for tire changes??? I'd get a LA rem, win, etc. action and re-bore or rebarrel.
As far as my 7stw, I think I'll wait out the new nos lr a-bonds and get the 140'ish grain one going if I can; if I can't I'm gonig to work it over and call it. I'm tired of fiddling with bitchy rifles when a lot of them are taking no work and shooting 1/2moa off the shelf.
