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

For some reason the email on my phone is jacked up and it wont send all the pictures the way I need them to. Anyway here's a shot of the rifle in it's original configuration. It's a 1974 Winchester Mod 70 Ranger in 270 Win. It's an ADL style which ultimately worked out better for this application with fitting the action for the longer Wyatts box and the PTG bottom metal.
The other picture is a quick shot I grabbed while I was thinking about it when I started the process of opening the bolt face up from a 30-06 bolt face to a magnum bolt face. The offset boring bar on the mill was only the rough cut process, it was finished, faced, and trued with the PTG Magnum bolt face cutter in a jig I built that does the bolt while in locked battery in the action. I have pictures of that too once my phones stops being dumb.

I have had really good results with H-1000 and it is really stable and cosistant with temp changes

Ditto what Lee said.

I have had good results too with H-1000 and my reloads with mine and my Pop's 7mm STWs.

Ben, that gun you are working with right now looks like the rifle I started with when I started building my Custom 280. Mine was a M670, in 30-06. But it don't look like it now, I'll tell you that. I forget which years they made the 670, actually, it is a 670A, which has the three position safety, which is better anyway. Gotta love the Winchester actions! I have gotten to really like them. I like them for the one piece receiver/ recoil lug. That has got to be a advantage when coupling barrel to it!

Anyway, I got the barreled action broke down, milled the receiver to accept the Wyatts box, fitted the PTG one piece bottom metal, opened the bolt face from 30-06 to Magnum, trued the action, trued the raceways, trued the lugs, trued the bolt face to the action, polished and lapped the raceways, lapped the lugs and fitted the raceways to the mag box to allow for smooth feeding. Now I'm ready to thread the barrel and cut the chamber. I'm having a custom stock (one off, not produced for the Win Mod 70 normally) made up at HS Precision from a buddy I know that works there and it should be in my hands next week and I should be able to get this thing out and shoot it within 2 weeks. Then tear it back down and send it off to get fluted, then I'll DuraCoat it when it gets back from twisted barrels.
Ben, sounds like you have been busy! And it also sounds like you are building a tack driver too!
PS, I like your workshop, nice toys!!
What barrel did you go with?
