You'll love your Sendero, I absolutely love mine. Do you know how many rounds have been shot through it before you bought it?

I have no idea who or where you can get brass for it.

Hopefully things will ease up and people will be less frantic so you'll find some soon.
I'll second that emotion! Every Sendero, no matter what the caliber, has always shot exceptional, needing little if any work to get it there. Now, enter the 7STW into the arena, and it even shoots better. I simply never thought that any round with as much horsepower as the STW, could ever shoot as good as it does, EVEN in a Sendero. But it does, and with a lot of class too! these guns are keepers for Damn sure!
As far as brass goes, I think fire forming is the best way to go at this point. I really want to get some Norma HH brass and work it out. I've been watching the gun shows recently. I'll find some !

My local store might have some Nosler or Remington .375 H&H brass, if you want their info let me know.

So I realize this is for 7stw so I will start with that news.
My buddy just told me his brother is selling his stw. Don't you know I called him immediately. Hope it's a sendero. Now on to the picture

New savage 6.5x 284. First three shotS.... Using HSM ammo. No clue the powder but 140 gr Berger. Funny thing, and I mention it due to the wealth of knowledge here with all you guys, if I shot one cleaned with 8 patches or so and shot again, they came out like the picture. If I shot 3 in a row, 6-8 inch spread.
Interesting. I hope it's due to barrel break in but I guess I will have to see

Well here's the picture update so far for my build. And you all get your first shot of my one off HS stock (really looks just like their other tactical stocks but they don't offer this one for a long action Win 70.



Now here is another Win Mod 70 in 260 rem we did (personal . Its for some memebers that asked what the extended bolt handle on a Winchester looked like

Ben, both of those two beauties are just that, and yours is really coming along. The one on the counter with the tiger stripes make me want to growl. That thing is " SEXY". You've got some great things going on there, and I'm sure you're getting anxious to see it ALL come together. Nice job on all accounts. Love the pix.
