Re: Remington 700 7mm STW
If you are not stuck on a Remington action, there is a Savage with a heavy barrel for sale in the classified section. I do not know the seller, just letting you know.
There is also a Sako for sale too, a member in the brotherhood has it for sale.
If you want a Remington action, I would look for a Sendero. All of the ones that I now of shoot really good. As for the SPS models in 7mm stw, they have been questionable. Some have had chamber problems and others have had barrel problems.
I currently have 2 stw's, one in a Ruger #1 and the other is a Winchester Model 70 Laredo. I have owned the Ruger since new, and the Win. for a few months.
As for shooting 800 yards, if the gun groups well at a hundred yards, then 800 yards is a factor of that. A good grouping gun is what is needed, so I would want at least a 1/2" group at 100 yards.
