I've finally decided I'm going to build a 7STW, I've been using and shooting my 7Rem mag for a while and just want a little more umph. My buddies are always giving crap for shooting a "womans's rifle" and I figure pushing a 180gr vld right a around 300fps should shut them up, I just need an excuse to be honest.. I'm thinking a 28" Shilen #5-1/2 contour with 1/8" twist, I've already got a laminate stock from another build that went a different route, I'm picking up another Ruger 77 tang safety in 7 rem with a Timney trigger. For whatever reason Ive fallen in love with this particular action and might as well add another to the collection. I guess my only real questions are what other specs are working well for you guys. I know playing with my coal will have a huge factor in how well the Berger Vld's shoot. Should I go for the 4 groove ratchet rifling, or standard I can't find too much info on it? I know the 1/8" will help to stabilize the longer heavier 180's. I've read conflicting reports on converting to the STW over a Rem mag as far as overall length and certain action's ability to feed it, should I expect needing to modify my action more than just the internal magazine? I've got an RCBS single stage press and with the volume of shooting I'll be doing will be fine for now, is there a particular brand of dies that work better than the rest for ya'll? Thanks in advance guys.
