Bump....

Oh, and the STW loves the 180 Berger VLD's with 75.5gr of H1000 backing it, set out at 3.858" COL.

My Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STW has a magazine that will only allow a maximum COL of 3.680".

With the load you quoted above having a COL of 3.858" are you loading them as a single shot or do you have a modified magazine on your Remington Sendero SF 7mm STW?

Thanks!

Single-shot. Yeah, I'm sure I'll have to shorten them a good bit to make them fit in the mag. Unfortunately I only shoot my STW at the range, after my 120 yard encounter with a whitetail around the 115lb mark....It didn't turn out real well for it, or I......It got mangled up, and I lost alot of meat. LOL After that, she became a safe and range queen, as I doubt I will ever be able to go Elk hunting since those hunts cost a good bit.

I dropped down to a 7Mag, and hunting has been alot smoother sailing since. Nowhere near as much meat ruined since it came along. And the .257 Wby does the job just as good with virtually 0 meat ruined. My processor was almost in shock at the vitals compared to the entrance & exit.

However, if I had the opportunity to take some whities beyond 500, I wouldn't heitate to sling a 180 VLD down range out of the STW.

Mudrunner

Wyatt extended boxes are what you are looking for. I believe Midway has them and others. I could not get Wyatt's website to open, but you can google them.

I need to measure my Ruger, i am interested in how deep that is for seating the bullets. Since it is a single shot, I can set them out there complared to the Winchester.

Wyatt's is the way to go. My Wyatt's allows for a 3.925 over all length and I can fit 4+1 in my Mod 70.
Also I was spinning up my barrel tonight when disaster struck, damn tool head broke and took out my threads when I was making my finial zero pass, I just lost an inch off my barrel. I guess at least it didn't happen on a customer's barrel. Damn tools!!
