I'd go 7stm by just rechambering the 7mag, shoot it out and think a new build through.

Rem Sendero contour....So about .860" at the muzzle.

I did the trigger already myself, so all that's left is a stock. I want a Sendero stock for it, but nobody makes one, and I doubt there's any way to make one fit...Unless we have anyone who's tried it, which any help or info would be great.

I know alot of yall know a ton more than me, and we have a few professional smiths that post in here, so figured maybe we might could colaborate on knowledge between all the minds in here and figure out how to make one of thise stocks work.

Well, I already have my Sendero SF 7mmSTW that was a factory job. And it's still got lots of life left in her (yall say about +/- 1,500 shots or so, right?). If so, I probably still got 2/3 of her barrel life left. So she'll last me for quite a while. And when I have to rebarrel it, I plan on going back with 7mmSTW.

The Browning is already a 7Mag, so I just thought about doing the rebarrel with a better barrel since it's my main deer rifle.

I plan on getting a cheap ADL from Academy for $350 or so, then stripping it and building a custom .280 AI on that. But it will be later down the road. I gotta cover every aspect of the 7mm chamberings.... LOL

Hope to make it into the Brotherhood with my 7 STW SF Bought it when they first came out. Its stock except for a 2.5# trigger job. She's been in the safe until now, just woke her up and put on new mounts and scope. It carries a Near one pc. ti mount and a Zeiss 6.5-20x50. She likes older Federal Premium 160 gamekings to about .5@100. Just bought some nosler custom 160 accubond and Doubletap 160 AB to try since no more fed. gamekings.

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

I'm curious if you could simply just take away some material to make it fit, or what would have to be done.

I will pull one of my 700 stocks and my A-Bolt stock tonight and compare the 2...

If there's a way to make it work, I think that would be cool and unique.

Hell, it would probably be cheaper and alot easier just to have HS or B&C make me a stock...
