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

Do any of you know where I can get a Sako M995 stock for a 7STW?

Stocky's is always my first suggestion.

You might want to check snipershide site as there are a lot of sako guys there. Also, call europtic. They delt in sako's and had the trg 260 when they were available. They probably have suggestions. I'd post on snipershide though first.

Hard to beat a McMillan rifle stock, I'd give them a ring.
I love my "Hunters Edge" rifle stock on my Rem 700 7mm STW.

If I had to seltle on one powder, it would probably be RL22. I have shot all bullet weights with it, but it really shines with the bullet weight you are shooting now. And as was said by another, 7828 is a great choice too. You could be onto some thing with the lead sled thing! It does change the harmonics, versus when the gun is shouldered, or bagged. Save the RL 25 for the heavy weights would be my recommendation. I would like to recommend the 140 TSX. My Sako absoleutely loves those things. My #1 sendero STW loves 140 CT bullets. FWIW, my all time favorite 140 load is, 79.3-RL22-140 CT, BT, TSX. Federal 215, @ 3.670 for Remingtons, and 3.701 for Sako. You can duplicate that load with 7828. The latter, is a tad slower, but it has worked for me. Good luck, and feel free to ask for advice.
Tagging this for later

Good luck finding one for your m995. As I understand, McMillian isn't making them anymore. That other site, that was previously mentioned "Stocky's" doesn't even show an option to pick the m995.
The problem with the m995 is the bottom metal is an integral part of the stock. So for someone to manufacture a stock for it, they also have to built the bottom metal. I believe McMillan used to do this but no longer offer the service.

I am building a custom off off a m995 action, I ordered a Kinetic Research Whiskey 3 Chassis for mine. That really isn't an option if you are building a hunting rifle. Finding a used one online, through snipershide, sakocollectors, etc. might be your best option. Factory originals are hard to find as well.

You are correct McMillian does not make them any more. The people who made the metal part don't make that any more either. This is a shooter I hate to junk it. But I can probally buy another rifle for what it will cost to fix this one unless I find a factory take off.
