Re: Why 7STW over 7RUM?
I have heard 1,500+ can be expected for the STW's. But then again, there's always lemons, and there's always unexplained oddities. Someone else might start dropping off at 1,000 rds, and someone else might get 2,000+ out of theirs. Every barrel will be different, there's no magic number of when it's gonna start opening up your groups.
I'm interested to see how the 7RUM performs compared to the 7STW. The more I think about it, I might have to get that 7RUM just to play around with...And like I said, if I hate it, I can always rebarrel to another STW, or build a lightweight 700 .257 Wby Mag for stalk-hunting deer. That Accumark gets kinda heavy after a while... LOL
