I prefer the Bog Pod shooting sticks, I had the stoneys but found the Bog Pods to suit me better.

Well, my Cabelas order showed op, and there is a brand new bag of Remington brand STW brass. They aren't kidding, they actually have it in stock.

I've used it back when they called it "big boy"... Decent stuff; basically just another slow burning ball powder. I've gone to Reloader for the most part though.

I was at the range today at the 100 yard line and my 7mmstw pitched a group just north of a moa. O.K., I thought she'll settle in and do better second group with a fouled pipe. WRONG, the dang thing pitched a 2.5" group. I grabbed my allens a couple of groups later, and sure enough the front trigger guard screw was barely finger tight. I pulled it down and it went back to moa on a hot barrel.
So, should I hunt down an aftermarket stock, pillar bed this one, or burn it in effigy?? Possibly pull the stock off of my 300 rum to test-bed the 7stw on to shore up my trust in the rifle before deer season?? Or will that just rub in bad karma on my 300 rum, a totally proven 1/2 moa rifle??
What kind of bedding? Have you thought of pillars too?

We did pillar bed the 7stw I was talking about and the accuracy came back to 1 moa or so and stable. I will be working with the rifle in the coming months as I want better accuracy but for now it is at least stable. I have designs on a mid weight rifle on that action if the stars don't align on the bdl lh with a laminate stock with an alluminim bedding block with an aftermarket trigger and a 28" fluted mid-weight barrel but that'll have to wait until I have the $.

Guys, where is the best place to get Norma brass. No, it's not for my STW obviously, but I wish they did make it. I'd buy a train load of it!
