Sorry, the ruger 77 can't take cal's as long as the 7stw. It can take on the 7x300 win though, and I'd go there if you want better than 7mag performance in a standard length action like the 77. Custom dies but easy to find brass.

Lefty, I've been curious about that cartridge, and I know where there is one at too! It has a Lilja barrel, and 27.5 long. Remington action, McMillan comp stock. HMmmm!

It should be within 100 fps low of an stw, just as the 7rum isn't that much of a step up from the 7stw. There was a guy shooting a custom in 7x300 last summer at my local range and it was shooting really well. I love the 7stw, but this one has the speed AND easy brass availability. If the brass thing gets much worse I'll have to hide the stw for hunting and build something like this.

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

just got a 7stw in ruger #1. starting to reload for it,140 ttsx, h1000 84 grns, will chrono and go from there. barnes gives col anywhere from 3.560-3.600. using a dummy round to get contact ( bullet to rifiling) i get a col of 3.810. i reload for my rem 700 and have always seated the bullet just off the rifiling however , the reload data col and my rem 700 col have not been .200 different. anyone reload for the #1 use reload data col or do you seat just off the rifiling? thanks

Most STW's like bullet jump and loading an STW in or close to the lands is really Iffy in my book as in pressure spikes I would hold back about 10 if it were me
