Oh I know.....I just like to imagine the absolute slightest possibility of having a twin...It gives me a reason to live.

I feel that they could not go to better people and I know who will appreciate them!

LOL, I like you said, I do admit too. "I'm a little bit of a SHOW off!
Since I won't have my twin, you could atleast sell me the LSS .257 Wby....I am still kicking myself in the ass for not buying one of those new back in 09 when I had the opportunity........

Interesting, I guess you are reading my mind because I am thinking about selling my LSS .257 Wby. I took it up to my gunsmith yesterday and got the little kinks worked out of it. It was grouping .67 MOA before but I bet it will now do .25 MOA now. It also has the action bedded and a aftermarket replacement Jewell trigger (factory set by Jewell at 1 pound pull) like my 7mm STW Senderos.

I'll let you know if I put it on GunBroker. My LSS .257 Wby is pristine (only has a slight mark on the bolt handle and it came with a slight dent on the stock when I bought it new) and only has about 150 rounds through it.

The last LSS .257 Wby (it was used and it did not have it tuned by a gunsmith, it did not have the action bedded and it did not have a Jewell trigger) sold on Gunbroker for $1,350. I bet that LSS .257 Wby was not near as accurate as mine is!

Going to shoot my 257 weatherby now. Also my 6.5 X284. Time for barrel Break in, cleaning, and seeing how it shoots!!! Stw is about 2 weeks out

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

Please let me know before you put it on GB As we might could work something out prior to the action. Never been a big auction fan. Had too many bad experiences on ebay. I don't use PayPal or any of that type of stuff. I can just send you a MO, and you can ship to my local FFL. He only charges $25 for long-guns. Pretty good folks, but their selection kinda sucks. But really helpful when it comes to transfers and stuff. LOL

You can shoot me a PM and we can discuss pricing and stuff. Also, would like a price with and without the scope setup, if you'd be willing to part with it.

I love my Accumark .257 Wby, but that sucker is so heavy you might as well be lugging around a cinder block through the woods... The LSS is a fair bit lighter weight. Been wanting to shoot one for a while to compare recoil and smoothness vs my Accumark.

Anyway, let me know. Thanks.

there are several that are nice and in that category- the dakota etc, I am thinking of brass cost, availability and OAL with a 195 Berger as an issue.
