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

Here's a gift to my 7mm STW brotherhood brothers who are looking for some cheap 7mm STW brass.

I just got an email from MidSouth Shooters saying they have a limited supply of 500 count Remington 7mm STW brass for $292.52.

That's the cheapest I seen it from any vendor.

I would try the simple answer first. Quit cleaning it. My 300 wsm will open up to 2" for about 15 shots after cleaning. Shoots .5" with a dirty barrel. It's strictly a hunting rig, so he don't get cleaned very often after that revelation. My buddy has 2 300 winnies that are the same way.

Is 50 BMG too slow for 160 Accubonds? I'm out of Retumbo and did not care much for it. Would H1000 be the next logical choice? Thanks in advance.

Kreiger says long, heavy bullets sometimes won't group at 100 yrds, and to try them at 300. I've heard this before, that some long heavy bullets will group 1-2" at 100 yrds and group 2" at 600 yrds. Has anyone personally seen this before? What is the technical term for this?

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

Been going through my 7STW stuff and found a box and half of WW Ballistic Silvertip factory loads. They came with an STW I got from a friend.

Any of you guys used these loads? What's the black coating on the bullets? Looks and feels like teflon........I'm concerned that it will foul my bbl. and be hard to remove. I don't do moly and have no desire to get into coated bullets.

Should I just pull the bullets and salvage the brass??

Thanks,
Jim
