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

Butter bean, I have not bought the stock yet, but I have definitely decided that the one that the one that I want is the Bobby Hart " LRT". this one does not come with the block, but I am going to pillar bed it,and glass the lug area. The barrel will float obviously. I just like the feel of wood. I have so many rifles in synthetic, that are nice, and stable, but this is platform that I can make JUST as stable, and still be great looking. Go to Stockys website and look it up. It can be had for less than $200. The one with the bedding block is quite more.( but worth it I'm sure). The company that makes those stocks is the same company that made the laminates for Remington when they had the varmint laminated series. Very solid, well built. All hard wood. Some guys use birch and maple, these are mostly oak and walnut. The resin is really what makes it so heavy, and solid.
Yeah, that bottom metal IS a good score. I am going to fool around with it, and see if I can get it to work with the stw cartridge. It is a little wide now, but I think I can roll the outer edges inward to capture the cartridge until the bolt pushes it forward. I will keep you all posted, and somehow or another, I will figure out how to do some kind of pictures. My daughters a whiz when it comes to that sort a stuff. Not me! Don't want a be either,!!! Ha HA! Take care to all!

I tried a cpl more loads. I suck, my loads suck, the gun sucks, or maybe all three.
Off a bag this time. 2 shot ends, 2 ends per position. Barrel never got past luke warm.
Looking back at my targets I believe the gun I sent back because of the massive copper fouling was far and away a better shooter than this one.

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

Well I went to the rifle range yesterday to see how my two Senderos would do. I remounted the scope in the first Sendero (I got this from Montana) because I moved the vortex bubble level from inside the rings to outside the rings so I had to sight in both of them. I took my Zero Point Magnetic Illuminated Boresighter with me to help. I set-up the chrony on the tripod and was shooting at the 50 yard target first. I took two shots with the new Sendero (the one from California-I bought it on tis website "Mint condition") and put the Zero Point Magnetic Illuminated Boresighter on the end of the barrel to help the reticles to line it up) You could hardly see it through the scope because it was very sunny. Well I got too much in a hurry because I forgot to remove theZero Point Magnetic Illuminated Boresighter from the end of the barrel and took another shot. Well after the shot I knew immediately screwed up because the Zero Point Magnetic Illuminated Boresighter was disintegrated and the bullet hit my chrono and destroyed the front sensor. Well I was really mad at myself but I thought "what the hell" I am here so I kept on shooting and sighted the Senderos. I have already talked to Shooting Chrony and I will send the Chrony back to the them next week to get it repaired. I will not replace the Zero Point Magnetic Illuminated Boresighter because I did not like it very well anyways.

I would HIGHLY NOT recommend anybody getting Zero Point Magnetic Illuminated Boresighter!

I finally got both sighted in at 100 yards and had 4 bullets left for each of the Senderos to see what groupings I was getting.

The first target picture is the "Montana Sendero" with four 140 Accubond, 82 grain H1000, COL 3.675 and that is the result of the 4 shot group.

The second target is with the "California Mint Sendero" with four 162 AMAX, 76 grain H1000, COL 3.675 and that was the result of the 4 shot group. The wind was gusting pretty good (10-15 mph) from my left side to my right side when I shot this grouping so I think it affected this grouping.

Since the Chrony was damaged I could not get any readings for velocity but I am pretty pleased with both groupings and rifles.

I am going to take them up to a gunsmith close to York, Pennsylvania in a couple of weeks to have jewell triggers on both and have the Montana Sendero skim bedded. The California "Mint" Sendero already has been skim bedded and action blueprinted.

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

Gamehawker, those are some FINE looking Hot rods, and some damn nice targets. Nothing wrong with either one. That 140 targEt is smokin' sick accurate. Those vortex scopes look Killeen on those rigs. Those two babies are diamonds in the not so rough. You aredefinetly on your way, and you haven't got far to go if any. Try RL 22 with those a maxes, and I'll bet they will tighten right up.
Very nice stuff and I happy for ya. It is nice when a plan comes together, and my friend, they have really came together for you! Take care and enjoy. Awesome, that's all I can say.

P/ S, I see those EGW bases there too. I love them., and sorry about the chrono. That sucks, and ICANN imagine you were some upset when that happened. ( I would not have been able to shoot as well as you did, if that had happened to me)

Well I was pretty upset and I am surprised I was able to shoot as well as I did too. And to top it off where the Zero Point Magnetic Illuminated Boresighter was on the end of the barrel it messed up the outside crown of the barrel on the Sendero too. When I am at the gunsmith I am going to ask him to fix it. Hopefully he will be able to repair it or recrown it.
