The guy was probably pretty mentally ill. I feel terrible for the families, especially the first responders families. Were getting lots of people calling in from across the country which is a godsend but does it have to take this? We need to watch our families and neighborhoods guys.

Peace to us all.

Ed, i don't even know how to respond to that except to say I am saddened by the news, especially because of today's date, ( Christmas eve), but glad that YOU are ok. On the same breath, how and why can things like this happen at any time? As I was saying earlier, about it ending on a bad note, well, it just got worse. And I don't think anybody liked Mr. Lappiere's answer to the problem the other day, or at least, it didn't come out the way he intended it.
Well, I think we have a few more folks to pray for! OMG, and I mean that !! Take care to all.

I have been a Remington man the majority of my life, but I'll not buy another NEW one. I'll buy used and older ones, that I can figure out when they were made though!!
Check out the Remington Quality thread, in this section, you'll see what I'm talking about.
I'm really sorry to hear that. I got pretty excited when I saw them offering so many of the newer 7mm STW's I was sincerely hoping it would be a big revival for the caliber and we'd start seeing more and more STW related "new tech" coming out.

I spent the day breaking in two new model 70's. One a super rare find I recently purchases from another member here which is an original Model 70 Sharp Shooter in 7mm STW. The damned thing is an absolute dream.

Put a new Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50 on it. Shot one shot at 25yds to get on paper, 2 more at 100yds, and we proceeded to burn the rest of a 20 round box up shooting little white rocks out to 750yds!

Best part was my little brother's boy was with us and he was busting rocks with it at 450yds with his first few shots. He'd never fired a magnum anything before and he's a big skinny 13yo "city kid".

In an hour he got to shoot the new M 70 300wm (no brake), the STW, and my 300 Rum. He hit everything he shot at to after I did some coaching and got him calmed down and alleviated his fear of the recoil. With kids I find it best not to show them how big the cartridges are before they finish shooting. Really helps to keep them calm.

I'll try and get some targets and pictures on the STW soon and put them on here. I'm a little more focused on getting it bloody first though.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE, FROM ME AND MINE..
7STW and Family.
I'll add just a ditto to the above. I've made some friends here at LRH I know I'll be sharing hunts and stories with for many years to come. We've got a lot of really class acts around here and ... . just a few old cranky asses.

Ho, Ho, Ho.

Yep, no matter how bad a day, week, year you are having you don't have to look too far to find someone who's troubles make all of ours look very small.

Christmas will never be the same for those families again.

Hopefully God will grant them grace and peace. Those families deserve a little line in all our prayers.

I'd strongly sugget moving up to the 150gr SiroccoII or the Hornady Interbond, or of course the venerable Nosler Accubond. With the new Accubond LRH bullets coming out this spring We're about to have an opportunity to take the 7mm STW into a whole new realm too.



I cannot wait!
WildRose,

Do you have a link to this Announcement for the ALR Acccubonds? Looking for more info on them....

Dan

Just bits and pieces I've picked up. They are supposed to start hitting the shelves in March-June.
