What length of barrel and what wight bullets and what powders are you using?

My two "go to" barrel makers are Krieger , Bartlein, Shneider, and Brux but there are a dozen high quality barrel mfg's you can choose from today and not make a mistake.

Ideal length and taper/wt barrel are determined by your intended uses of the rifle and what and how far you are willing to pack one.

Snowy Mountain Rifles has the best brake I've ever tried (overall).

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

Hey Guys, need some advice... I recently listed a few guns for sale on this site & another. Got a lot of response and now have to figure out how to ship them and exchange $. Do I need to have my FFL ship to the buyer's FFL? That was my impression. As it happens, I have a guy in Toronto who wants me to ship a rifle to a commercial receiver in Niagra Falls NY where he would pick it up. Also, how should I handle payment? Any info and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to talk about bumping the shoulder back .003 or .0035. Want to make sure I understand what is going on here. What I think I know is you take a fired case out of your STW and measure it with a Hornday Head Space gauge and caliber and you write down the measurement. You then set up your die so when you resize the case your measurement is .003 less than your first? I hope that's it.

Also can this be down with a neck sizer die or do we have to use Full Length sizer die. I have both but have never understood what bumping the shoulder back means or why we do it. Thanks Rick

I have bought and sold quite a few here in Canada. Here we have EMT, or Email Money Transfer, which is basically a direct transfer from your bank account to the sellers, its instant and free. Not sure if that is an option for you guys south of the border. Another common option, is a money order. Sent, tracked and signature required to receive, then the firearm is shipped after payment arrives. I don't know what a FFL is, we don't have that here.

Does this mean you finally sold your m995? If not, let me know after you finish this transaction with the guy in Canada, I may be interested. I just have never bought and gone through the import/export route from the USA.

Well this am the Canada guy decided it was too much hassle and he dropped out of the deal. It was for a Beretta Mod 502 in 7mm Rem. Anyway, the Sako M995 is still available also, and I still don't know selling/shipping a rifle to Canada would work.

I know it can be done, there is a few stores up here that will do the paperwork and import it for you, for a fee of course.
I was looking at your Mod 502 last night, that is a beautiful rifle as well, I've never seen those Beretta/Sako models before.
I will look into what it takes to import the rifle, and whether or not it can be a private sale on your end. (It may have to come from a dealer down there)

I'm not quite ready to be purchasing, but I would like another STW in a Sako m995 to go along with my custom one.

I have never seen another Beretta Mod 502. The action was made by Sako and the rifle assembled by Beretta. Really high quality fit and finish. I bought it for my son who has since got into trapshooting and he asked me to sell it for him to help defray the cost of a really nice trap gun.
