Oh my God, excited doesn't even begin to discribe this. This is a right down to the guts excitement. Better than Christmas day when we were kids. ( some of us still are, thats the secret), kind of excitement. I have shelled out a few bucks recently buying donor guns, keeping them, then buying another gun as a donor, and having it put together, but I was NOT letting this jewel get away. That 300 RUM had some good history to it, but I am going to MAKE history with this baby!!! Ha ha ..
As far as the barnes bullets go, from your other thread, I hve not heard of anyone shooting them out of a STW, but I am sure they are capable of doing the job. I am gaining a little respect for the Barnes bullets of late.I have a few rifles that shoot them well, but have yet to pull the trigger with brown in the cross hair yet. I am going to try some out in July on a crop damage hunt. We shall see. I have heard good things on the MRX.

    Bob,

    Woo Hoo Buddy, you have absolutely won the jackpot being that this rifle is a 7mm STW!

    I have two feelings going on inside of me right now. I am very, very happy for you but I am soooo envious too!

    No wonder you are so excited right now.

    It could not happen to a nicer guy who really appreciates this incredible caliber in an awesome rifle!

    Congratulations again Buddy.

    Not to derail the sharpshooter direction, but I got back last night, and took apart my new sendero STW, and it looks like it might be a factory stock, it has the full length aluminum bedding block with pillars. When I took the recoil pad and aluminum spacer off, this is what I found...Looks like someone mortised out a hole, and filled it in with some sort of compound that has little bb's in it to make it heavier!

    Somebody had to do a lot of work to make those changes. The original recoil pad is glued on and is a pain to remove cleanly, never mind mortise the butt, and fill it with the weights. Then put a plate on the butt! How doe a the rest of the gun look? Barrel, action trigger, muzzle. Don't forget to check the crown.

    Butterbean--Saw the pics, looks good! No skim bedding, yes really big palm swell. Action looks to be fine, although its filthy! Factory trigger feels like it has been tuned. Don't have a trigger pull gauge, but it feels pretty light, guessing about 3-4 lbs. It has a removable muzzle brake, and the crown looks to be good, as best as my non gunsmith eyes can see. Barrel was turned down 1/2 inch or so for the threading and then I'm assuming it was recrowned
