7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner-dscn0524.jpg

This is my Model 70 7mm STW. I have a 4-16 X 50 Vortex Viper HS LR scope mounted on the Rifle. It's pillar bedded and the barrel is free floating and has well tuned trigger. The rifle is fueled with 154 grain Hornady SST bullets. The rifle has several kills on it including a 935 yard shot on a mule deer in Idaho.

Nice pipe!! It's good to see that a win ss stw can be made to shoot. My Pops had one and the tupperware stock was flaky enough accuracy wise that he grew frustrated and sold the rifle.

I'm looking to load 150 TSX with my STW. Hodgdon's manual's max loads are 3 grains lighter than what I use with 160 accubonds. Barnes loads much higher.

Need help

Thanks
Johnny
I'd guess differences between test rifles. Start low enough to be safe in the event your rifle needs the lower charge and walk her up.

I agree the stock on this model is disappointing. That is why I pillar bedded the stock first thing. I got lucky because this is a shooter. It likes just about every load I tried. It shoots sub minute groups at 100 yards and if I'm shooting well it it will shoot 1/2 inch groups.

I had the same rifle in 7mm Rem. Pillars installed, bedded with Marinetex and it shot bug holes with the Winchester premium 140's.

I also stiffened the forend by epoxying in a steel rod running the full length back to the recoil lug.

I still miss that rifle, but my ex wanted it and it was a small price to pay to seal the deal to be rid of her.

I also have one in 300wm in a nice laminate stock I did the same way that is a fantastic shooter that I got lucky enough to pick up in an estate sale for 500.00 new, unfired and still in the original box with a decent Leupold matching silver Leupold 3-9x50 VXII installed.

The steel rod in the stock is an interesting idea. Getting new ideas is one of the reason I go to these forms.
