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

Got a call today that my gun is done!!!!
He said he shot it last week and the primers "popped" sounding like it was over pressure but the smith said that it was due to old ammo and so he bought new ammo and shot it. Said it shot fairly well!! No number on MOA but it sounded funny. Wanted to see if anyone ever heard of such a thing???
But I will be posting some pics tomorrow when I get her and set her down. Put the bipod on and look at it!!! Rose, you still out there????
7STW, butterbean- time to pick your brain for loads on it!!!
I am so excited!!! Except
It's 9pm and 105 degrees out here!!!!!
Gonna make slow shooting!!!

Mario

    Thanks marioq. I am not a fan of the paint job. I am going to have HS precision paint all the metal matte black. I might even get a longer, heavier barrel. I want to squeeze every ounce of potential out of this round. Btw, you have pics of your new rifle? Butterbean thanks for uploading the pics.
