Re: Talk to me about the 7mm STW
I jumped on the STW when it first came out. got a new Win 70 and had Hart ream it out. Loaded it with Nosler 150 gr Btips and Partitions, So far I have shot 8 deer from 75 yds to over 500yds never had one take more than 2 steps! One summer I loaded it up with 120 Btips for ground hogs WOW!! need I say more. I sold that gun and got a Rem Sendero STW it got a little heavy so I traded it for a S/S Ruger No.1 It too was a little heavy (Getting older now) I just finished building a STW with a old Rem 721 action I put a Houge stock on it and I found a Rem 26" S/S fluted sporter barrel and some bottom metal. Took it out with my old loads for the Win. and put 3 in 1" at 350yds. ( I think I'll keep this one)
I go to a lot of gun shows and find brass and ammo at many so I think it will be around for a while If you don't reload the 7 mag may be easer to get. But once you see the STW in action you will never look back.
I will be taking the 721 7mm STW to Africa next year and its the only gun I am taking, Thats how confident I am in this round.
Just my 2 cents worth
Best of luck in your quest.
