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

Bell & Carlson's at Stockysstocks or McMillan are all I know of. There are wood one's out there too. You'll probably have to do some measuring or have the gunsmith do it before you order the stock to get it right. Your barrel will shoot anything up to and including the heavy Bergers coming out, will you be carrying a lot? If not, maybe 28" then you will probably have the longest reaching stw on here, especially if you shot the 190+ Bergers.

Good Luck

This is for post 64' push feed. Thanks guys.
Bob,

Look at this : Long Action Winchester : Pacific Tool & Gauge, Inc. - Store Home, Redefining Quality in Manufacturing

Pacific Tool and Gauge has several diffrent ones to choose from. Used Post 64 Win bottom metal is really hard to come by. These are really high quality stuff. You'll need to measure your hole spacing to find the exact fit for your 670 action.

the pricing on their web site is right on with the pricing from places like Brownells or Midway. Some of the options are even a little cheaper...

Hope this helps,

Dan

My first loads for the 140 BT were from Layne's Shooting Times article and gave very close to 3500 fps. Quickly saw that his loads were not what I wanted to shoot in my rifle. My present 140BT load gives 3350 fps with 1/2 moa out past 300 yds. Don't have my COL on hand, but I seat about /1/64" shorter than magazine box.

The Interbond is a better choice in the Hornady bullets. Everything Iv'e shot with the STW using the SST's is showing just huge gaping exits and extreme internal damage out to 750yds.

You get better controlled expansion with the Interbond but still get more than ample internal damage to do the job. The amount of meat I've lost even with perfect shoulder/spine shots just isn't acceptable to me.

I'm pretty sure you can order it from Winchester directly or from PT&G if they don't have it and you can't find it from someone used.

Anyone know what stock will work with a huskavarna imperial 7mm???

Thanks. One more step toward the brothahood!!!

Dano, thanks for the link. I went there, and saw a few good possibilities. After I get the barrel chambered and installed, I may for a while just set it into the stock that it is presently in. ( after a few modifications, and bedding of course ). Then I'll save my pennies and get a bottom metal set up, then get the stock I think I want to go with. I'm thinking the BC medalist / Alaskan . It looks like I may have to open the barrel channel bait anyway, as the # 4 Brux is still wider then the channel dimensions are. I'll figure it out. OR, Boyds has Laminated " Praire Hunter" stocks that look decent, that are for blind Mag....... Choices, Choices , Choices... That's part of the fun. You've been there!

Hey I thought I would get a better answer here. What pica tinny rail would you STW brothers say for stiller long action , Remington long and short actions to put a nightforce or vortex on . If you like a particular set of rings that would help also
Thanks
