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

We love Sendero SF's around here! Post up some pics of your rig in the picture thread. Welcome to the forum and to the Brotherhood.

Hopefully Lee and Ed can get you fixed up with some brass. I would give you some of my old brass, but I don't trust it being safe, b/c I've shot it more than 3-4 times (and didn't keep count, like an idiot), and I'd feel bad if I sent some to you and they cracked or broke. I recently had to buy some more myself, b/c of how unstable my old brass had become. If you look in the first post in the Picture thread, you will see a pic of what happened to one of my old brass. It almost broke in half and almost caused some serious issues with my gun. Keep a check over in the Reloading Components section in the For Sale section of the forum, and you might can find you some good deals on STW brass there, too.

Tell us more about your setup.

Welcome to the hood!

I have twin 7mm STWs Sendero SFs and absolutely love them. Mine are sort of customized (skim bedded, jewell triggers) and if I do my part both of them will do .25 MOA or less.

This is actually my second sendero in stw. Righy now its topped with a swarovski 2.5-12x56. Sitting on Harris bipods. She loves 140 grain bullets of every brand. Right now occasionally the groups are 3/4" at 300.

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

I recently acquired some handloads with Barnes. Im very curious to see the results. Im a ballistic tip nut myself. Especially after seeing the 2 inch hole thru a half inch thick plate of steel. Lol

Good Lord! It looked like it was made by a press. Ive never seen a bullet do that before.
