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

Good morning Guys,
Update on the rifle load…
I finally got the load worked out for my rifle,
Barnes 168 LRX
79.5 gr H1000
3.6480 OAL.
3180 average velocity
Variance in velocity over 3 shot 10 fps
.5 - 3 shot groups at 100 yards..

In my book the cat’s meow…

I want to thank all of you for the advice on working up this load..
My 17 year old son and I drew buck deer tags in a special hunt in southern Idaho this fall. Shot could reach the 1000 yard mark very easy. I now the gun will do the job.. I hope I can get confident with out to 800 yard by October hunt.. My 3 boys and I drew cow elk tags here in Utah for December time frame..
If everything goes right I will be out of room in my freezer by xmas….
What a great Christmas gift that would be a freezer full of deer and elk..
ButterBean, that is a cool looking rig hope it shoots half as good as it looks. If it does then we should be hearing about all bullets in the same hole…fare better than I can shoot… have fun shooting it..

What do y'all think about a 27inch barrel blank for another STW??
Is it enough?? I hope Ben reads this as he works on them so often.
I bought it thinking it was 28. Turns out its 27 so may have to try another route

27 is plenty should finish at 26..... anything longer than that gets really hard to carry IMO
