Re: 7mmSTW Picture Thread

Figured I'd revive this thread with a few updated pics of the ole STW...

She now wears a Vortex Viper HS 6-24x50 with the BDC reticle, and locked down with Seekins Precision rings.

Re: 7mmSTW Picture Thread

Here is my 7STW becoming a "long shooter"...I hope!! As I had it built in '92, Rem 700 action, Douglas air gauged stainless 26" barrel, 1/10. Stock is a McMillan, over the years I have free floated the barrel, added a Zeiss 2.5-10. Also a Jewell trigger. And that has been the platform till now. Accuracy was as good as I can shoot these days, eyes aren't as good, more shakes, but on A good day, I can still put some good groups together. As it was could put them into under an inch....see accompanying target, Nos 160AB, 77.5 gr of RL 25, 100 yds. The hole at 10o'clock was me not being able to stand the pressure!!!!....Just kidding, I think it was the wife standing behind me!!! The group repeats and I have done about 3/4 " at 300 yds anyhow, picture shows changes...A 20 moa rail, and a 6X24 Swarovski PV that I robbed from my Ruger Number 1 220 Swift. Further plans are to pillar bed and also bed the recoil lug and tang. Having said all that, any more thoughts?? For sure, I need to practice, practice, practice!!!. Target picture follows on the next post, can't get both up together.....

Thanks in advance.
