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

As for the Stevens 200 action, as long as the action and magazine are long enough to handle the 7mm stw round, it is able to be done. A good gunsmith can re-chamber the barrel to 7mm stw and you are on your way. Alot of 7mm Rem Mags have been made into the stw.

As for the Stevens, what are some of the specifics about it. Does it have a 26" barrel? What is the twist rate of the barrel? How does it shoot 7mm Rem Mag?

You certainly can, it's been done, but depending on which way you go. Being a Savage, you can buy a pre chambered barrel for it, and literally screw out the old barrel, and install the new one, set the headspace, and lock it up. I believe the barrel on your present gun has a 24 inch barrel. You CAN rechamber the one you have, but the STW needs a 26 inch barrel to get it's potential without running into load density issues, or high pressures. There are several barrel makers, and vendors that probably have just what you are looking for. I think SharpShooterSupply may be able to help you with that. Also, maybe check the Savage Shooters website may have other suggestions as well. There are a lot of people that use the 200 as a foundation for a super rifle. There are lots of options with that action. There are lots of guys on THIS website that also can lead you down the right road also. Take care and enjoy all the options.

Happy New Yr guys
I'd go look again and see if it's a sharpshooter. If it is it's a bargain at that price if it's in good condition.

Anyone using the 160 a-bond in their 7stw??
Shooters pro shop has some as over-runs. Just a wee bit of savings.

I like RL25 for the later temp spread you mentioned. Also, H1000 seems to be overall a little better in warmer weather. We all know how temp sensitive RL22 is, but the 25 dosen't seem to be AS bad.
