Re: building my first long range rifle
Yes, I used a 7mm for years and really thought that i had something. but when you pull out the Chronograph lots of 7mag loads were very optimistic. When I bought my 7STW i was so impressed I would NOT ever let a friend buy a 7 mag. Just like the I've got to have a weatherby because it shoots so much faster. But in reality the reloading books don't give out the level playing field of comparing 22 & 24 inch barrels compared to the Weatherby 26 inch
The chrono doesn't lie! I'm also big on long barrels and slow powders.
.270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.
