I am looking for a 7mm STW rifle. They are not easy to find unless you want a $2000.00 (and up) custom rifle. I have seen a few in Savage rifles which i guess were made by savage for a couple of years.
My question is this: How hard would it be to make one out of say...a 7mm rem. mag? or would another cartridge be a better starting point? (7mm WBY, 300 mag, 375 ?)
It would seem to me that I would'nt have to re-barrel the gun if I started with a 7mm mag..but admittedly I am a newby at this. Has anyone built one before?
Realisticly, what would it cost me beyond the price of the rifle?
Any help I could get on this subject would be great.
i just got my 7mm stw last year build and got 4200 in bare gun broughton barrel, bat action , manner stock , williams bottem metal , bat scope rings , jewell tigger . think you could build one alot cheaper buy useing savage action or stiller action and a more basic stock
Buy a Remington Sendero in 7 RM and have a good smith true up the action and rechamber it. You will need a Wyatt magbox for the longer VLD bullets,( it is worth it).
You will have around $1500 in a great rifle.
