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.
I am aware of the muzzle blast, I haven't shot a Bennie Cooley yet, but some other models. 90%+ of the time I shoot alone, so having others to worry about is not a concern most of the time. Actually after shooting rifles with brakes, I have switched to using plugs and muffs for all rifle shooting. Saves your ears. I have a thread protector for this new rig as well, with the weight of it, I'm sure the recoil won't be too bad without the brake installed.

Thanks Everyone for the compliments. This has been a plan in my head for a few years now, and now its a reality.

Nice long range rig Fire. As 7stw just said, looks BADASS. It sure is satisfying when a long term plan becomes reality.

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

Hi all i just joined, i have been getting info off this sight for a while. I am shooting a Remington 700 SPS 7 mm stw with 26" barrel topped with leupold mark 4 LRT. I have found one good load so far: 74.7 gr IMR 7828, 168 gr vld, fed 215 primer, remington brass. I shot an elk last year at 675 yrds. It exited the animal, and the next step she took was here last. I am currently searching for aneven better load. I do not use the magazine, i load one round at a time. I love this round, and hope to do nothing but improve it!

USMC91, is that a 168 Berger Hunting VLD you are referring to? I have some of those, been sitting on them for a year or so. I only have rl-25 on hand, did you ever load them with that? Also, you're OAL?
