Re: .257 STW Project

I had Kirby Allen build me a 257 stw and its awesome. Mine is built on a remington 700, 30 inch match grade #6 fluted 1 in 10 Lilja barrel. Holland QD brake and a HS Precision stock. Balances very nicley and has laser like trajectory. I would recomend a 28 inch barrel minimum for this caliber. You will love it!

Re: .257 STW Project

I knew about 2joutfitters. I have Talked to Kirby on a XP-100 this is on hold untill fed Tax is Paid.
He was in my mind as a builder, Wanted to get some input
for people who knew more than me.
The guy at 2j's won't give any info out or sell any ammo
unless you buy his Rifles.
I was thinking of a Rem 700 action.

Re: .257 STW Project

I would go with Kirby if i were you. Some of there velocities listed on the site you mentioned sounded fishy to me. I can get up to 3950fps with a 100 grain bullet not 4060fps as described on thier site and i have a full 4 inches more barrel. Kirby has built quite a few 257 stws and has alot of exp. with this caliber. Mine is phenominal. Feel free to email me if you need any startup data or have questions. Mark yiphowl@hotmail.com
