The Vortex Viper PSTs are 6-24x50 not 6x20.

Congrats on the two STWs, I guess.

Well, if you wanna get rid of it, please let me know. I can't be mad at you, but I was pretty perturbed, not gonna lie. Especially since he lives so close to me. LOL

Enjoy it, and let me know how she shoots. Once again, if you get rid of it, holler at me.

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

Well, I'm trying to glue my rifle (7stw) together as I type this. I figured I'd bed the barrel first, try it for accuracy, and skim bed the receiver if it needs it. I really like how the pillars snug up; it's the first time I really have taken the stw apart since the pillars were put in.
I'm also going to try another primer. I've got mag. primers from everyone stateside here so I'll play a bit on ignition before I decide on a barrel. The rifle isn't that bad accuracy wise I guess, but it's not good enough for what I want it for. I'm going back to basics on pills too; I'll be working with those red and green boxes again.

Bigeyedbass, congrats on your new toy. I had a interest in it, and would have liked to have owned it, but I'm cool with that. That is a nice rifle, and has a lot of potential, and as my brother," gamehawker" said, it is nearly as fast as it's longer barreled brother. Plus, you have another stock to use. Let' us know how it shoots, and enjoy.
Welcome to the Brotherhood!!

Dan, everytime I wait and then go another route and buy something, what I was looking for pops up. I now need a new safe. This place has so many people that trade, it makes ebay look slow. A nice side bene of the site really.
