    It shoots flatter then the 300 RUM with less recoil and higher BC bullets. I think I will go with one for my next barrel. I saw a load on a custom rifle website, 140 grain bullets at 3400 fps. If I could get this, it would be the ultimate load out to 500 yards. Beyond that a 180 grain Berger at 3200 fps is mighty flat.

    ive never shot any thing heavier than 160''s in my two stw''s,
    they flew great a 1,000 yds. 7 mm are twisted at 1-9.25 or 1-9 , those twists mite work with the 195's.
    the 300 u/mags a great round too!. try shooting both before you buy.
    lite bullets turn inside out with this much power and often fragment to nothing. regards jjmp

    that's what i am looking for a sendero 7stw, i noticed there is one on gunbroker but i am not sure if i can get it accross the border i have never bought a gun in the states yet i guess it can be done but at what cost????
    for that reason i did not bid on it

    i do reload and i was looking at the barnes 195 grn but notice that sinclair has 180 bergers that sound pretty good

    i shot lots of moose with 180 grn although it was from a 30 cal

    I have a close to a twin cartridge to the STW, the 7mm Dakota.
    I have exclusively used Richard Graves 200 grain Wildcat with great success. I haven't hunted moose with them, but they have done a great job on elk sized critters on down to coyotes.

    What velocities do you get with the 200 grainer, and what twist barrel? Whats the BC of the bullet?
