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

I found my 7 STW in gun shop this last fall. (Sorry to those who have heard this befor an seen the photos on other threads.) It is some what of a mystery as I don't know who built it or the barrel make. However here are the other specs:

Remington 700 BDL built in 1962 first year 700 with a 5 didgit serial #. It has a 27" Sendero contour barrel (1-9" twist) with a Stainless Vias brake installed. It has been completely blue printed and the metal work and blueing is flawless. It was in it's origional stock, but now wears a H-S Precision Old style Sendero Stock and just got new bottom metal.

It's now wearing a V-XIII 6.5-20x 50mm Leupold scope with Warne Maxima rings and bases..

This is the Rifle as I recieved it, It hadn't been fired in at least 10 years and bore is perfect.

This is what it looks like now:

I'm working on loads specifically geared around the 180g Berger VLD using Either Hodgdon's US869 or Retumbo.

I haven't had the opportunity to shoot the test loads yet.

I have shot 160g Sierra Gamekings pushed by IMR7828 and they shot aound 3/4" It should do well.

    Great reads! I am currently in the process of a budget STW build off a savage action, broughton barrel, rifle basix, and b&c. Going to be a mid weight elk rifle but if it shoots as good as my smith makes my other long guns shoot......... I may be spending more time behind it.

    It's nice to pick up a rifle that shoots pretty good from the start, it will get better I'm sure.

    I can't say enough good things about the STW.
    For my needs and wants its the perfect Seven.

    Here's a stock Rem 700 SPS chambered in 7STW, only mods are a Wyatts box so I can shoot VLD's and a 700 Ti stock I painted. Rifle weighs just a hair over 8 lbs. 4.5x14 LR mounted.

    I was lucky and found 500 pcs of Winchester brass for it. And no, none of its for sale!




    168's at 3,200 RS Magnum is a great accuracy powder for this cartridge.
