Re: Any one have any info on a 6.5 STW?
I have one and it shoots very well. It is one that you work up your load, zero it, and use it for hunting purposes. If you plan on shooting a lot this is not your rifle. It is top of the line in 6.5. Any more powder capacity with that small a bore and barrel life is not good. I have five 7 STW's and they are a better overall hunting rifle because of all the good bullet choices with much better BC's than 6.5mm and longer barrel life. Easy to load the 6.5 version. Just get 7STW brass and neck it to 6.5. This one and the 257 STW got popular several years ago until the barrels burned out and they got rebarreled into something else. Both are fantastic deer-antelope rifles out to 700 or so yards. I still have a couple of each and love to shoot them. They are not a lot faster though than the 257 wby and the 264 winchester. Matter of fact my 257 wby is faster than my 257 STW.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
