It also has a pretty exotic looking stock on it which looks really nice.

looking forward to getting out and putting a few rounds through it.
Get you a PhotoBucket account and post up some pics! We love gun pics.....Or as I'm sure most of us look at it as gun porn.

Yeah, I'll second that, we are a bunch of gun porn junkies welcome to the Brotherhood, but be careful, you might get addicted, and be a multi 7STW owner like a few of us here. I can honestly say I have never ran into any STW"s at any Pawn shops I've ever been to. Some junk .22's, and grandpas old shotguns. Nice pick up, and hope that it works out to be a shooter. Don't be afraid to ask if you run into problems , or if something dosen't seem right. This is a Badass caliber.

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

Anybody in my STW brotherhood got any help for me? I got 60-something views, but responses so far. I really could use some help, and I'd like to load some up tonight if anyone can help me out...

Also, I need to know what my rate of twist is my stock Sendero SF 7STW? I know that I should know this, but for some reason I'm drawing a blank... I know it should be around the 1:11-something range, but I got nothing...

Any help is greatly appreciated.

If your Sendero was made in '97 or '98 like mine were the twist rate of the barrel on your Sendero SF 7mm STW is 9 1/4.

Is a carbon wrapped barrel lighter? I watched the video, and it's hard to say.

It was made in the 02-03 time-frame. It was supposedly (according to Remington) the last Sendero SF 7mmSTW to ever leave the assembly line. They had already put a stop to production 2 weeks prior, but my former bossman knew someone up there, and told them how much it would mean to his "client" if they'd make one more. So they built 1 final rifle....And it appeared about 4 weeks later. Said the Remington guy told him they had to hand build it from scratch, but charged us standard price for it.

Don't know how true the story is, but it's easy to believe...b/c this thing came with the smoothest bolt, trigger, and shot 1-holers with factory ammo... I've never had a factory built gun (other than my AccuMark, which is a hand-built factory rifle) do that.

I don't know quite HOW true the story is, or how much was exaggerated by my bossman (I never known him to overexaggerate things), but that's what the word on the street was.

So, it's an 02-03 model....Don't know how much difference that makes.

Sorry for telling the whole story again....I just love how everything played out. It was like a miracle to me. I had wanted one just like it that we had in the store that had been sitting around for quite a while, but someone had bought it just before I had the money saved up... So Jay thought it would be a nice thing to do to order one for me. Which I thought was mighty nice of him. He always did treat me like I was one of his own kids...I'd still be workin for him 10 years now, if his business hadn't been bought out by a rich a-hole.
