The price seems to be good, or at least at this point. I think his reserve has been met. Put a Bell Carlson Medalist on it, and " Viola" . Just a thought!

I saw this last night too and tried to be the first person to post something but Len has not activated it yet.

Very cool.

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

Welcome to the forum, I have a Nikon Monarch 5.5x16x44 on my Mark V STW and had planned on putting a Leupold Vari X III 4.5x14x50 on my Win Model 70 Classic STW but I think it will be to short for the action . Will know as soon as i get it back from the gsmith( trigger adjusted to 2.5 lbs.). You may have to put a picatinny mount on yours if the scope is less than 13 in. long

Yes it does make the surface hardness higher (rockwell scale) over what the action was to begin with, but it's more for a different finish and add some nostalgia and class to the rifle/pistol. So to answer your question, it's worth it if thats the look you want to add to your rifle to make it different and something you don't see everyday. There's really no performance gain to speak or safety or durability benefits reasons behind doing this.
Never having to worry about rust again and the added lubricity which comes with the melonite treating is a huge bonus.

While it's all apart anyhow I would think that running it back through the mill after such treatment just to double check the truing should be much of a big deal.

Am I off here?

Brand new to the forum and just as new to the STW. Read so many good things on the caliber since my brother turned me on to the idea of buying one. I am a reloader, at least on all of my common currently owned guns, such as my 6mm, 25-06 and 30-06, but wanted a flat shooting "big gun" to reload and toy with. So I bought one. It was a used custom job with a remington 700 action and a 26 inch hart barrel on it. I got an incredible deal on it, so I haven't invested a lot of money at all yet, and really don't intend to. So my question to you guys is this. I plan on primarily hunting with the gun in some open terrain in Nebraska, coyotes, deer etc, but would like to be able to set up and shoot some long range off a bench for fun. Could you guys help me out with a scope that will do the trick for both? I understand you get what you pay for, and have always just been a middle of the road guy on price range of scopes, such as the Nikon buckmasters or the Vx II. Have had great luck on all of my other guns with these scopes. But, I have never owned a 50mm objective and would like to try something with one of those out. Could you offer some suggestions without breaking the bank to serve my needs. Best bang for my buck if you will.....

Thanks again, appreciate it, and love hearing you guys' input on what I assume will be love affair with my new caliber!
Sounds like it should be a pretty sweet rig for you. The first thing I'd look at doing would be to have someone check for you to be sure you have a good free floated barrel and pillar bedding.

Next, figure out what you are willing to spend on a scope, the double it and buy the very best glass you can possibly afford.

The nicest rifle in the world is just a very expensive club.

At a minimum I'd say look to the Vortex Viper PST, Leupold VXIII, ifyou can find one at a bargain like I did the Leupold LPS or Leupold Mark 4 in the 2.5-14x50 range.

Years ago someone I really respect told me to always be willing to spend at least as much on your scope as you do on the rifle itself.

I've got both VXII and VXIII's along with MK IV's. The glass is so much better on the III's and the Mk IV's it's really worth the extra time to save up and spend a little more on them.

Compared to a lot of other scopes in the same price range though even the VXII stands out.
