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.
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
