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 set-up!

I would love to have a Win Model 70 sharpshooter classic SS in the 7mm STW caliber!

Lefty, the brass situation is no better up here, I did find some brass but didn't buy it because I have some for now, the brass was R-P., I wish I could buy a bunch of WW brass, that is what is hard to find. I did get my EGW #42400 picatiny rail but I am not happy with it, the fit is not right, the base fits the reciever beautifully but the clearance cut under the base does not match the reciever port opening, the rear part overhangs the ejection port by 1/2" or so. this is going to be a problem since it will make loading a bugger, tried to work things out with EGW but they tell me that the only thing they can do is send it back for a refund or for modifications, funny thing is it is labeled as made for H&H actions! It actually fits my standard 300 WM fine but not the STW, not sure which direction I will go from here.
We got to put pressure on Winchester to make another run of brass, there seems to be enough demand.

Trust me it works. I've also used 1/2" wide 1/8' thick aluminum welded together in a T or a small piece of aluminum L metal laid in with the apex up to really stiffen up a cheap plastic stock.

Just be sure whatever you put in there you run all the way back to the recoil lug and you'll be good to go.

If you want to add a lot of weight and really stiffen it up I mix Devcon and tungsten powder till it's thick as paste, warm it and lay it down with a putty knife after removing as much material in there as I can.
