I think i measured it at 3.86 or somewhere right in there.
what would you guys suggest ?
I suggest trying a 140-160 grain seirra, barnes, or nosler with rl25 or retumbo (rl22 or h1000 could be good too) under it and a mag. primer. You may have to form brass from another belted mag at present as many places are out of stw brass. A couple of guys are doing well with the 154 hornady. I don't usually snuggle up to the rifling so I stay to the pills that don't care as much.

I'm going to re-barrel my 7wsm into a 24" length, want it to be a lightweight hammer with about a 130-55 grain bullet, like to keep it under 8lbs., with scope. What barrel contour and weight? I shoot it offhand and with sticks or kneeling sometimes, so I want it to balance too. Stock recommendations appreciated also. Action is a win mod-70 post 64. Shank length?

Ideas...

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

finally had a chance to take my 7stw out and shoot it at 200 yards. i was really impressed. shot a 1.25" 3 shot group which was .25" tighter than what it shot at 100 yards. this is the first rifle i have had that actually got a tighter group at 200 than 100. now i just need to find more ammo.which is really a pain in the rear.
