Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

Just measured my OAL at 3.723. Does that even sound right?
Was going to seat at .015 less than oal to start with, but now not sure. Seems long.
Anybody else have throat that long?

It depends on your rifle. I have a Sendero that I could seat out that long ,but I get much better accuracy seated at 3.610 with a long jump.The longer OAL would not fit the magazine and limit the gun to a single shot.

What is your rifle?

It's a Sendero as well. What is the max that will fit in the box?

Not sure, but I can measure my Sendero's mag box this evening.

If you need extra length you can always install a Wyatt's Extended 4.00" magazine box & follower. It will have to be installed by a smith for him to remove some of the metal on the bottom of the receiver to allow for the extra length.

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

My rifle is sitting on my desk as we speak, I guess my lazy butt could measure it. haha. I just had noticed the 3.600 max for standard stuff and was really curious if my throat seemed longer than normal. Maybe that's just what you get out of factory stuff.
Just measured...It's 3.710 so I guess I know where to start my seating depth.
Thanks for the help guys.

Your throat is probably normal for a Sendero.

I started with mine loaded 10 thou off and what would fit the magazine(3.610).That was when I got better accuracy with the long jump.At that time I didn't crono them,but group size was my goal.I've read alot of other post where this is the case.
