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

Some of you know my yearlong attempt to get my factory barrel Rem STW to shoot. The Brux #5 and action truing brought the groups down to 3/4" at 200, finally. I've done zero load development with the new barrel, simply shooting the same load as I did with the old factory barrel.
I took my daughter out today after re bedding the rifle, bedding a new Nightforce Direct Mount base, and putting the Greybull scope back on it. I put a fresh cleaned, cold bore shot thru it, cranked the windage and handed her the rifle.
These are her first 3 shots at 100 yards.
I then put a cpl Bergers thru it at 200 to get close to the dot and shot this 3 shot group with the new Accubond Long Range 175's. Same load specs as the Bergers but guessed at .015" off the lands as I couldn't get a good reading. The Accubond LR's are less than .600", shot off of bags.
To say I'm pleased would be an understatement. Thanks for all the help and tips, they're much appreciated.

Marioq, I've done zero load development with the new barrel/trued action, neither the Berger 180's or the Accubond LR 175's but looking at the groups, I think I'm going to leave it.

73.0 gr RL25
Berger's are .016 off the lands at 3.130" to the ogive (3/4" @200 yds).
Accubond LR's are .015" off the lands at 3.165 to the ogive (.600" @200 yds).
