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