    That is sweet all around, looks like a canon headed to Afghanistan! Awesome stock, sleak and still has a cheek rest.

    Good job...

    Mario, that thing is nasty looking! I'm digging the color scheme. Let us know how she shoots.

Gonna try to reload some. 168s over retumbo and 25. Maybe 33. I think my 29 inch barrel should burn it ok. What do you veteran stw shooters think ????

    Happy. 4th all

    Took the cheek rest off... Didnt like it... It was how I got the stock...
    Mario, I think you need to pack it up, and ship it to me, and I'll do the RD work for. Then one day, after I slaughter deer, and ELK, MAYBE, I'll send it back to you!
    Again, that thing looks wicked!!!!
    As far as the load, give it , anymore importantly YOU some time to break in, and acclimate . You are on the right approach, and just let the rifle tell you what it wants to shoot, and don't narrow your field of options either. Time and time again, I have TRIED to decide what I WANT a rifle to shoot, and it always ends up, that I try something, a little different, and it abbots like a house on fire. That, just happened to me with my 280 . I simply just tried a bullet, that I was only just a little curious about, and it consistently shoots them into a hole now. Funny things happen, but they always happen when you are at " wits end " , trying to get something else to shoot.
    Dude, that thing is BADASS!!!!!!

    Thanks for the compliments guys! I figured it was appropriate to post here, because that bull was the first game animal that the STW got to feast on!

    marioq--Late season area 11 bull, east of Ely, NV. And that is a sweet lookin STW!!!
