Hey guy's, What would be a good hot rod caliber for long range that isn't too exotic. A 7mm stw or what. It will be custom made on a remmie reciever. Will te stw have enough velocity to shoot the heavy wild cat's and the accubond out of the same barrel. Thanks guys
I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"
I have a 7STW and really enjoy shooting and hunting with it. The only down side to the STW (IMO) is that quality brass isn't really available.
If you build a custom rifle with all the bells and whistles you may want to consider a cartridge that has readily available high quality brass.
My longest 7STW kill, which would be short range on this forum, was @ 465yds. The 162gr A-Max made a decisive kill and the shot was not all that difficult with this flat shooting set-up. I like the 7STW.
Screech, if your going to build a custom rig, I would go with a 7mm Allen Mag designed by Kirby Allen. You can get quality brass and bullets. Your quality brass selection, with 7mm STW, will not be good. Let us know what you decide.
