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

If she balances better and there's no rattle than it's ok by me. It still has to shoot. Factory stocks typically need a little work, heck, my gunsmith did some on mine and it was an HS Precision he had to sand and fill. I'm just getting to the point of wanting to start taking things apart and learning how to customize to my own liking. It's so hard to get a gun customized for several shooting positions, especially when the cartridge is powerful.

Barrel was turned down 1/2 inch or so for the threading and then I'm assuming it was recrowned
Good deal Dude ......I agee wit 7stw and Dano,I would work that stock its sounds like a good one with a little tweaking,Sounds like everything is in order for it to be a shooter,

I have 2 boxes sitting here for a week now that were supposed to get shot this weekend but I went scouting for Elk instead.

Here it is side by side with my VSSF stock from my 22-250. I'm guessing with the big palm swell, and the dual front swivels that the orange stock is one of the newer Sendero II stocks. The bedding block and pillars look similar. I'll probably keep it, and just repaint it or hydro dip it. I kinda like this camo pattern.....http://www.blackicecoatings.com/imag...ORNINGWOOD.jpg

7stw, I'm interested in the pictures of the new rig when it arrives. I'm going to look for some pictures, it sounds like it is custom though? Especially with a McMillan stock. I'm buying a McMillan next, either the M-24, 40 or the HTG.. I like when the palm swells area is narrower as I often switch from sling to carrying and it's more natural when hiking on hills where you can slip. Does anyone own an HS Precision Pro-Series 2000?

Do anyone know if I have my barrel fluted to reduce some of the front end weight it would impact the accuracy? Does it need to be re-heat treated?

Just got back from Turkey hunting but without a bird! There's always next weekend or the grocery store!

I like the women on that stock jpeg! If you look at it too much you might miss an animal in the crosshairs, you know, those short curly hairs can be distracting!

Ed, You're funny!

Bob,

You sound as excited as I was when I found my 7stw in the gun shop. I couldn't stop telling everybody about the deal of the century.

You truly have a sweet rig coming to you. I wish I had that kind of cash or means to be able to get into a rifle of that caliber when it came up. I wish I could get into that .300 Ultra that you are trading out of, always wanted one.

You've got to admit that sometimes dreams do come true. To ge the one rifle you've always wanted....... such a sweet thing.

Sorry for being late to the party, Been out all day with the Family.

Dan
