What would be the ballpark or known BC on their 210? They list 730.

A couple of members have extensively tested that bullet and the results showed it to be very close to the 210 Berger and 208 Amax which put's it in the .63 range. I witnessed one of those tests out to 1000 yds.

Re: 7mm???

I'm having great luck with the Berger 168 & 180 VLD's in my 7STW.

Re: 7mm???

Minimum 26" barrel with a 1:9" twist rate.

wildrose, will the stw work in a savage LA 110 or 111? i have one of each.

sorry, i know these questiions are really basic, but all my shooting, hunting and reloading for the last twenty+ years has been for revolvers, very little rifle stuff until recently.

thanks
The 284 is the STW what a tricycle is to a Ninja.

It's very close to the 7mm Rem.

The STW can be built on any long magnum action.

Visit our 7mm STW group thread and you can learn a whole lot in a hurry.

Personally as far as I'm concerned there are only two 7mm's, the 7mm Rem mag and 7mm STW, the rest are just fluff HA!

The best thing about the .284win is that it can be necked down to 6.5

Yep. Go to at least 28" though so you can better utilize the slower burning powders and maximize velocity.

The 1:9 twist should stabilize any bullet at these velocities.
