    Len, the STW is here to stay, and this web thread is a testament to that. As a matter of fact, I was out shooting one of mine today. The stories, and trials, and progressions that have been noted here are incredible. We have seen people come, go, and come back. There are folks here from all corners of the world, with one commonality. And as my brother, " Butterbean" said, there is a braintrust, a comaradity, and some genuine friendships that thrive , that were spawned from this thread. I for one am proud to be a part of it, and what a great Forum for us to be able to do such a thing.
    Thank you for providing that.
    Boy, would it be nice if we could get Layne Simpson to visit sometime!
    Len, as far as the member count, wow, that would be a chore! That would only be going through 3000 plus replies! But I certainly agree, it is AMAZING!

    Mr. 7STW, help Len out okay.

    I'll send you a shoulder roast this fall! Maybe a back strap...

    I know I've learned ALOT since discovering this thread. Plus the common bond is nice.

    I didn't shoot the STW today, but I shot the .308 with some new heavies....I loaded up some with 39.1gr of Varget, and some Berger 210 VLD's seated up close to the lands. The old 5R was ripping them out around 2,400 fps! 2 of the 3-shot groups were under 1/2" @ 100 yards. Literally 1 ragged hole. I didn't get to take pics, b/c it started to storm right as the day ended. I'll get pics next time! I'll definitely be making this one of my staple loads.

    Here is why someone may be willing to put in the effort.

    If I feel there is enough interest, as evidenced by total member post participation count, I may start a dedicated 7 STW sub forum.
