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

Ok my phone stopped being a pain so here's some more pictures of the build process. Mainly getting the action ready. Here's some pictures (as requested) of the jig I built to true the bolt face as well as the jig for lapping the lugs. The end picture is the action trued and fitted PTG bottom metal with the Wyatts magazine. There's 4 rounds in the pictures for size comparison but it will actually allow 4+1 without much effort. If I cared enough I could build an extended floor plate for the bottom metal and get 5+1 but if I can't get it done with 1 or 2 rds, then something went bad wrong.

oops forgot one more. This is milling the bottom of the receiver to accept the longer Wyatts box.

What do you want for the Vortex?

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

OK Folks I recently did some trading with a member of LRH and i ended up with a 7mm stw in savage model 112 with a stainless 26'' barrel and a blued action with a synthetic stock and adjustible trigger. i have never seen one but it is a cool rifle . it has never been fired and i have not had a chance to take it out yet but i did do some home work and found that i cant load anything longer than 3.600 because of the magazine and if i load the berger 168 grain it would be a mile from the rifling . I think i measured it at 3.86 or somewhere right in there.
what would you guys suggest ?
