You will love the 7MM STW. It is a shooting/killing machine!

Nice looking rig and sounds like it is a shooter. I've got two STW's and both shoot small groups with factory tubes. No telling what yours will do with a premium barrel. Welcome to LRH!

Re: Build finally finished first shots fired today

update.
Just got done doing a little more tuning. 162 amax with a healthy load of rl25 is yielding 3300 fps and groups in the .280-.300 range. I think i have found my load. As soon as the weather cools a little im gonna see how the cds turrets work. Also update on the broughton bbl. I am absolutely amazed at how easily it cleans. I put about 15 rounds through it and took it to the smith to use his borescope to check the bore. Nearly no copper and only minor carbon. cleaned spotless in about 20 minutes.

Nice looking thunder stick. Do you have a muzzle brake on it? How is the recoil?

Love to see the laminate stock. Not many pics of rifles with those stocks. Btw I love your statement at the bottom of your page. It's a reality check, still got me laughing.

Re: Build finally finished first shots fired today

Thanks. Glad you guys like the rifle. It does have a muzzle break and the recoil is very manageable. I have a 25-06 ackley built on a sendero and the stw has less felt recoil. I had my nephew over yesterday shooting with me and he has a sporter weight 308 win that kicks substantially harder than the stw.
