Re: 7mmSTW Picture Thread

Well here she is fellas. The trade was finalized yesterday. It needs new paint, and I want a 28-30 inch barrel. Also, the most obvious thing...it needs glass! I am excited to finally have this cartridge and ready to get her shooting. Friendly advice always welcomed.

Re: 7mmSTW Picture Thread

I've read that 26" may be the perfect length for the stw.

Bump for more STW pics....

Here's a few of the long-rangers... The STW is on the left.



STW with new scope installed...Konus M30 8.5-32x52

Re: 7mmSTW Picture Thread

I know it's not an STW, but I figured I'd post some pics of my newest build....It will be a Sendero .25-06 Ackley Improved. I just got all my parts in, now it's time to find the money to take it to the smith to have everything trued, headspaced, and fitted up properly. The gun is just in mock-up form right now, sitting in the safe, just to get an idea of what it will turn out like when I'm done.

I literally pieced this gun together from the action up. Bought the action and recoil lug from a local guy who had it still new and laying around, then bought the stock from a semi-local store that still had it sitting there from last year. Bought the barrel from another member on here. The DNZ scope mount came on my .338 WM when I bought it (same guy I bought this action from), and decided to reuse it. My new bottom metal and BDL assembly just came in Monday from Brownells. And the old Nitrex TR-One 3-10x50 I've had since about 2008-2009. For a $300 scope, that thing is CLEAR!

Other than what my smithing bill will come down to, I count the Nitrex scope and DNZ base as free, since I sourced them from under my bench where I keep spare stuff...I have right at $600 total investment in this build, just by waiting for the right deal to come along, and then buying when I see what I want/need for it.
