My rifle is a Sako 995 with a shileen match grade barrel at 26 inches and a schmidt and bender 4-12 power scope which was put on the day it arrived and has never been taken off. It was built back in 1997 if I remember correctly. The original stock was used but stifend it with aluminium so I could keep the magazine. THe Barrel is a bit fire cracked now and could do with replacing it was chamberd with a Foregreens reamer with .135 free bore if I was to go up to 160+ grn bullets how much freebore would you recommend? Hope to take it to Sweden this year to hunt moose. I will try to attach a couple of photos. love the forum visit nearly every day to see whats happening great informatuion keep it up guys.

Have a gunsmith inspect it. In all likelihood it can just be set back a few turns and rechambered unless you simply want to rebarrel.

I am still working up a load for my 7stw just started reloading. Thinking about Imr 7828 and some 140gr sierra gamekings and some 160gr speer deep curl with rl25 for starting out. Here are some pictures of deer we had on camera the first three are in a friends backyard in town and the last one is one I am letting grow a while.

Hey Lefty,
I've been using them as my 7mm STW mag load for spook and shoot as my long range 162gn A maxs are too fragile for anything up close to be 100% confident of a humane kill.
They seem pretty tough and lung shot red deer tend to wander off alittle before they fall over.
I have recovered one 160gr Accubond from a smaller sika hind i shot on the run at 20 yards, took out about 7 ribs and stopped in her hip bone.

I use to use the 140gr Accubonds in a 7 rem mag and they put the animals down quicker.

Regards Steve.

Pardon my ignorance but... .

What is the difference between 3 and 4. I'm assuming my new EW has the number 4. It will not shoot single shot if you hand feed the round. My other's will but they are older.

Can the modern version be modified to work like they do? I'm much more comfortable having the option of three in the hole and one in the pipe than 2+1 and if it's easy to accomplish I'd like to modify the EW's bolt to do so.

Thanks.
