    I believed Arnold Arms is out of business. I was once contemplating of having them build me a rifle using their Apollo action, and discussed with the owner at lenght about the project. The owner is very pleasant and accomodating but luckily for me, I didn't proceed with the project. I'm surprised that they're still around.

    I believe its basically the same thing as a 270 STW. I may be wrong but for some reason that is what I think the round is, basically a full length 270 on a belted magnum case.

    I believe it's a 300win just necked down to .277. I once concidered the round but opted out for the 300 arnold. To make a long story short I made the down payment yet they filed chp 13 before giving my money back or sending me a rifle. Wouldn't mind paying Mr. Doug Arnold a visit if ya know what I mean.

    I think its based off the 8mm mag but I need to check I don't have the book with me on the road. I know they are out of business but I liked what I read. I was wondering if its still possible to get a reimer and maybe make a rifle. Just a thought

    thanks

    all the STW CASES are based on the 8mm rem mag case
    from what i can find all of the arnold arms were based on the 300 win mag
    necked to the various calibers... he called them original designs but winchester
    had a different idea of proprietary ....
    i have always thought the 300 win mag case is beter size for smaller bullets than
    the stw case i have a 7mm stw & 257 stw both are well into overbore
    but the 257 really needs more tube to get maximum velocity
    seems a 277-300 win mag w/130 gn swift scirroco at about 3450
    would be my mule deer choice.... just sayin
