Re: Howa Rifles

7mm STW will reach on out there.

Re: Howa Rifles

7mm STW = 7mm Shooting Times Western (STW). It's a 7mm bullet in a necked-down 8mm Remington Magnum casing. Big, long, nasty sucker. Holds a good amount of powder.

You can get some HOT ballistics with it.

It does. My suggestion would be to buy the Howa barreled action in a 300WM or 7RM. Both calibers will get you there for deer size game and even Elk in the right situation. If the plan is to shoot shorter ranges for hunting and longer ranges for target, then the 243, 6.5x55 (my suggestion), and .308 will do the trick.

My dad has a semi-custom Howa in 25-06. It shoots bug holes at 100yds. Never got a chance to stretch it out at the time I used it. I was to young to understand its capabilities. It has a 22" light contour factory barrel, in a bedded walnut aftermarket stock.

You can use a standard long action for the edge. Sinarms is developing a really good round that will match Edge performance and fit a standard action.
