cool rigs... I like the fact you set one up with lighter pills and one with heavies. Best of both worlds that way.

    Well I finally killed with my stw. Ruger no 1 168 bergers rl25 got a pa bear this year undecided whether to keep using this bullet as the first shot blew thru pencil in out at 30 yards didn't seem damage much dropped him but he got up and required shot two which completely expanded and destroyed everything in its way still need to get a hicks accurizer and bed forearm and better scope. But I love this caliber

    Congrats to the new member.

    Awesome harvest with the STW. Have you done any load development with the Ruger?

    Congrats on getting her bloody!

    As for the two shots, that's what happens at close range. Sometimes they blow up and sometimes they just pencil through and unfortunately there's really no predicting what is going to happen at such close range

    A very healthy addiction. After the first one I knew right away I needed another. The Sako was originally started life as a 375 Ackley ouch. Found a Sako take off 7mm STW barrel and voila STW #2.

    I haven't done much load development. Just little playing around finding what she likes current load is 168 berger 75.4 gr rl25 fed 215m Remington case oal 3.78 shoots .5 to .7 groups at 100. When I got it nothing would shoot less than inch. Couple shims and floated barrel Will save more load development for when I get rest of work done to it
