Sackett, I am convinced that the quality of the reamer was a big factor as to how accurate your rifle is. ( and obviously the smith too). I know of a couple of rifles that were rechambered to STW, and they are freaking lasers. One is a Browning, and the other is a Remington. Both have 26 inch barrels. I know yours is 24 inches, but who cares! That thing is a hammer. You did good !!

Sackett, she's a nice looking rifle, paint brings out the custom look. You said plastic? or is it composite? I might be looking for something like that stock, any ideas? Something not too expensive but beddable? Did you use pillars?

No it is just a Remington (I guess plastic stock) I filled the stock portion with "great stuff" say $100.00 then had it glass bed and floated no pillars...then $5.00 for textured spray paint at wal-mart. LOL that's it!

Would you believe that I brought the barrel on this forum for $40.00!!! He said it shot 3/4 moa with factory ammo, so I took a $40.00 chance and won big!! I thought that with proper reloading and shooter it would do at least 1/2 moa,,,,and well it exceeded my best wishes!

Damn, what a deal for a very accurate barrel.

Re: 7mmSTW Picture Thread

That's a great story and it shows what a little cash and a little luck and elbow grease can produce.

Love the rifle, it's a custom in my book.

Be safe and fill the freezer!
