Well I just measured my Dad's 7mm STW (the same rifle as "AlabamaJagd") and the barrel is actually 25.5 inch. The brake is 2 inches.

But I wouldn't want to be super secretive about it......

Oh well, at least he got his price. I was going to do a one for one trade , with a 700 LSS that I have in 300 win mag. That was my only option at this time, because I'm building a 280 , and my $ is limited. Actually, I'm glad that I didn't trade it, because this LSS is drop dead beautiful.
GameHawker, how does your Dads shoot? Have you ever chronoed it? just curious on velocity.

I shot my Dad's last week and was working up a load with 140 gr CT silvertips, H1000 powder, Fed 215 primers and once fired Winchester nickel brass.

The rifle was three shot grouping easily sub MOA and about 100 fps less than my Senderos with the same load,. The rifle was averaging 3,340 fps with 85.5 gr of H1000. My Senderos average with the same load is about 3,450 fps.

I was quite impressed!
