Wow,

I just noticed it was a year ago today that this AWESOME thread was created!!!

Thanks to "The7mmSTW", the member that had the foresight to create this wonderful thread that has the most phenomenal collection of shared information to the people who own/shoot or aspire to own/shoot this incredible caliber!

This thread has over 2,900 posts in one year and I think it is a record on the LRH website. It just shows how popular and admired the 7mm STW caliber is today.

Long live the 7mm STW and congrats to the first anniversary of many to this thread!
