    I have a 7STW with a 23" bbl. Factory Rem bbl with the brake removed and recrowned. I want to rebbl to a different cal. without a belted case if posible.
    I know it has the Mag bolt face: so what are my options?
    I have 7WSM, 7RM, and 280AI so I don't want a 7mm.
    Will a 300 WSM work in a long action rifle?
    Use will be for deer and hogs across large fields, ranges to 600yds+.

    Now that is what I needed to know.
    Do I need just the bolt frame or a complete bolt?
    This rifle has no j-lock.
    I bought the rifle new when the 7STW first came out, it was extremely loud, so I sent it to Hill Country Rifles and had the brake removed. While there they added a Mcmillan stock and bedded the rifle.
    I want to keep the stock and just rebbl to a different cal.
    The smaller bolt face gives a lot more choices.

    THANKS
    Coach

    Something to consider is the distance between the rec. rails; standard (30-06, etc.) may or may not feed well with the slightly wider rail spacing used by the STW case.

    Try feeding some empty cases from the magazine to determine if you have a problem.....
