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

I was offered an 8lb jug of imr 4759 today too, it's on hold, he said he'd sell it cheap to. Has anyone used it and if so what caliber, I have a lot of calibers. 8lbs of something good and priced right is hard to turn down right now. Ideas?

Unless you have a few straight cased pistol cartridges like a .44 mag or .357 I'd stay clear of it. It's a pistol powder with a speed between H or Imr 4227 and H110.

Sako TRG-s m995 Action, Bolt and Trigger,
Kreiger 7mm SS #6 Contour 1-9 Barrel chamber in 7mm STW
JP Enterprises Bennie Cooley Brake
Whiskey 3 Chassis from Kinetic Research
Leupold Mark 4 6.5-20x50mm TMR Reticle M1 turrets.
Sko Optilock Quick release bases and rings.
Bipod is a Mystic Precision MPOD

Here it is, my Kitchen table isn't the best setting, but it will have to do for now.





Can't wait to get this to the range!
Very, Very Nice! All or the right equipment for Longrange shooting.

Sweet looking rig but be forewarned. That Bennie Cooley muzzle brake while very effective will burst eardrums and make people's eyes, and nose bleed if fired in any sort of enclosed area such as bricked up firing lanes or God Forbid and indoor range.

Before you pull the trigger on that thing make sure everyone there knows what's about to go off and has a chance to put in earplugs and put on muffs over them.

I had them on two different rifles and just had to get rid of them. They made shooting nice rifles absolutely intolerable.
