Got a 7 mag that needs a new barrel, wondering if it would be worth rechambering the new barrel to a STW.
Whichever the cartridge, the barrel will be 26'' long in a Sendero contour.
Think its worth the hassle to switch? I am using either 168 gr Bergers or their 180gr bullet. Gun weight is about 9.5 lbs.
I'm pushing the 168s @3050fps.
Definitely worth it and you will be very satisfied with it. I have five 7 stw's and they all shoot very well. The 7mm STW is a very accurate hard hitting cartridge. If you are staying with 7mm the STW is what I would do.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
