Re: 7mmRem Mag vs 7mmSTW
Wildrose is right on with his post. I have five STW's and two Remingtons. The remingtons pretty much collect dust. The stw's are extremely accurate, are a pleasure to load for, are not finicky and have won many 1000 yard matches. They are much faster. The STW is the best 7mm out there because it is the largest case you can use in 7mm before you get into a severe barrel burner and deminishing returns as far as velocity. With each caliber you hit a certain size case and beyond that you just don't gain much velocity wise in comparison to the amount of powder you feed it. Also they begin to eat barrels pretty bad. The STW is not bad on barrels and is only 100 fps behind the RUM. I have two RUM's. The STW is where 7mm shoots best so I have five of those.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
