    Travis just re-barreled and accurized my 7 STW to a 7mm Mag. The accuracy is superb!

    Here are the particulars:
    Rem 700 action BP
    Wyatt's extended box
    Jewel trigger
    Broughton LWLR, fluted 27'' Sendero taper barrel, 1-9 twist
    DE 3- Port Muzzle break
    Camo paint - H/S Sendero stock
    DE Check piece

    Shooting 180 Berger VLD's

    I can't wait until this rifle arrives!

    I switched to a 7mm mag because it seemed more practical for me to use a caliber on hunts where I can pretty much find ammo everywhere in the US and sometimes other countries in a pinch. I wanted a great, accurate midrange rifle with fairly mild recoil and for me, the 7mm mag fits the bill. If I need to step it up for Elk at long range, I use the 338's, Lapua and RUM, which are perfect in my opinion for LR Elk. The 7 STW was just in the middle of the 7mag and 338's.

    This is just my opinion and it works for me.

    7STW is a great caliber, just went a different direction with what I have in my arsenal to shoot.

    Nice rifle. Really like the paint. Is that 'rattle-can' paint?
