    I could have sworn I posted an inquiry about Weatherby rifles earlier. I must be going senile.

    In a nutshell, I am still looking for a left handed bolt gun. I see a lot of Accumark rifles in 7mm STW on the Web. Any of you know anything about the rifle and/or the caliber? I did a search and came up empty.

    CDNN has a bunch of lefty accumarks on clearance since Weatherby discontinued them. Whether or not they still have 7 STW, I'm not sure anymore. I did recommend one in 7 WBY MAg to a friend, and it shoots nice! I was so impressed with it, I just ordered one in 338/378 WBY MAG with brake(not from CDNN). The accumark is Weatherby's high end rifle that comes with the Kreiger criterion barrel. Until I receive mine, I can't tell you much more.

    Accumarks are excellent rifles, I've had one and my dad currently has one, both in .340wby. I sold mine because I wanted a lighter rifle. I'd take another accumark in a heartbeat.

    I have two going on three. Mine are excellent shooters. There are some lefty's on Gun Broker. Not sure about 7mm STW though. There is one right handed in STW. Search for Accumark.

    I have a 7 STW and I love it, lots of knock down, I hit a black bear at 300 yrds just after a rain, when I hit it water sprayed off him like a sprinkler. I shot a moose at 150 yds and it went down in its tracks. Recoil is not bad but you need a 26 inch barrel min.

    The 7mm STW is a wildcat based off the 8mm Rem Mag case and was brought to commercial production by Remington and later dropped do to the introduction of the 7mm RUM. It is a very accurate round that is very close balisticly to the 7mm RUM. I owned and reloaded one for a couple years it was nice to shoot with mild recoil. I would suggest reloading for it if you don't reload now because it will become hard to find factory ammo for it soon I think. Hope that helps and you can't go wrong with this caliber in a AccuMark they very good rifles!
