New Gun and Scope here she is...

Well i got this gun a few weeks ago its a Custom built on a M70 Action with a #6 Lija barel. I did find a scope i like it a VX-3 6.5-20X50 LRT and its chambered in 7mm STW i am hopeing to make this a 1000yd gun. Here are some pictures. Also my first round of reloads.

Very pretty rifle, and she's a shooter too. I am a big fan of stainless barrels in 7mm also.

A couple of questions if I may: what stock do you have on it? Also what does she weigh, all up and ready to hunt? What weight bullets and what rifling twist??

Once again a very nice loking rifle, I think you're on to something. Best of luck with it.

OE Stock that has been piller and bedded. 1:9.5 Twist Shooting 160GR accubonds but going to try 168 VLD's and its at 11lbs now. I am going to put a HS Precision stock on it soon and have it coated i think.

Looks great!!! Congrats.

I am having a little issue with the "2.60 oal" written on the targets......what does this mean? If i am not mistaken, the brass alone should be 2.80". I would think loaded OAL on a STW would be in that 3.50- 3.90" range.

Just wonderin.
