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

It's a 26 inch Brux barrel that is a heavy varmint contour with 6 flutes. I think the twist is 1:9. I forgot. I need to ask the original owner. It has 200 rounds of conservative reloads through it. I really like broughton though. I might rebarrel it to a 28-30 inch broughton with a muzzle break. I am not savey on the twist rate for this round but what ever could stabilize 160 grain and heavier rounds would be best.

OK brothers!!!! Here she is.... Butterbean will like that she is a model 70. Brux barrel 1-9.25 twist about 29inches without break. Atop is a 5.5x22x56 MOAR (thanks Bob!!!!)
I have not shot her yet but the smith said she shot "ok". Not really sure what that meant as he did not bring the target back with him. Gonna break the barrel in with some Rem corlokt 140 gr for now and then I will start my reloading.... Thinking 180 grains ober RL 33 or maybe 25 or retumbo.... I have that powder... I was thinking with the long barrel, the 33 may just do the trick... ANyone try it yet???
Let me know if you have any ideas... Ohhh also, took off the cheek piece.... Got in the way of the bolt coming out... I think it is a manners stock....

Thanks

Mario

Mario, I'm on vacation now, but a little " birdie " told me of a BADASS STW was on the " site ", so I borrowed my nieces iPad to check it out. And YUP, he was / is right. That thing is giving me wood ' bro. Wow, nice job, and yeah, forget all that stupid **** about what " some " people say about Winchester actions. I love em, and wouldn't hesitate to build another rifle on one. I have a few customs built on whinny actions, and they are as good or better then one built on a remy action. Nuff said! IMHO.
Enjoy the toy!! ( yeah, like , your not going to enjoy that machine )
Peace out!
