The barrel is free floated. That was the first thing I checked.
I took it back to the gunsmith and he cut the brake off and recrowned it to see if that was the problem. It wasn't. I then took it back to him with dies, brass, bullets and powder because he said he would work with it. It set in his shop without moving for 3 weeks or more, so I went and got it.
I had a mule deer hunt coming up, which is what I built the gun for, and didn't have time to mess with it anymore. Its been leaning up in the corner ever since.
You could have the chamber opened up to 7mm STW without having it set back any. You would gain some velocity, and it might clean that chamber up enough to where it needs to be.
