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

Hey guys, I'm contemplating a build. It'll be my first! Of course it'll be a Stw. I know some of you build your own and im looking for advice. So far Krieger is highest as far as a barrel goes. And it'll be on a Remington action. I'm considering a laminated Boyd s thumbhole stock. I would appreciate all advice you have.

Krieger is a great tube ...... I Myself Like Hart and Brux.......The Thumbhole from boyds is a great stock but will need to be bedded rite off the bat

Thanks Butterbean, I'm looking to basically have a barrel contour of my Sendero. It's amazing at all of the options and details. Good Lord! I just want a custom rifle. Lol

80 GR - If you want a custom or semi-custom rifle quick, you might want to check out RedHawk Rifles. The RedHawk rifle I have has a Douglas premium air-guaged barrel and I am very happy with it. I understand that Douglas is one of the more affordable ones.

80 grains, another option that you may want to consider is the Bobby Hart LRT laminated, that can be bought at Stockys. The price is very reasonable, and it is a Quality product. I bought one last spring, when I built a custom rifle, in STW also. It feels great, " in hand" , and your eyes are perfectly aligned with the scope. It is a laminated version of a A5 . The inletting is well done, and has pillars already installed. The color I chose was Tawny Brown. I am tickled with mine, and recommend at least a " look , see" before you make up your mind.
As far as your barrel goes, there ain't nothing wrong with the Kreiger. But remember, the barrel is ONLY as good as the smith who installs it!!!! That being said, do your homework, and research your intended smith. Find out what is he going to use for reamer, and how many cuts has it done already. My 280 was cut with a brand new PTG reamer, minimum specs on the headspace, and when I resize my brass, it is effortless. The finish inside the chamber bore is like a mirror. Give Ben a shout, and I think he will set you up just fine. Take care and enjoy the ride. It's a lot of fun, and when you get it home, there's no feeling quite like it, except when you bring home your first born!

7stw. That's exactly the reason i posted about a build...the wealth of info from fellas who know their stuff. I am grateful for everyone's kindness!

I would've never thought about the reamer. This tells me to slow down and research everything involved. I feel like i need a blame grocery list. Lol
