Re: Rechambering

For more horsepower at a reasonable cost why not just rechamber to 7STW and use factory ammo with 175gr (or similar) bullets.

Re: Rechambering

An stw is what I actually shoot. The cartridge was designed for 140 grain bullets and
a longer barrel is a must with the heavier bullets to gain full advantage of the case
capacity. Not a desirable feature in a gun you are going to tote around in the mountains.
