    Who chambers the 7mm STW & RUM other than Remy??? No, offense but a couple Remys have left a bad taste in my mouth... Love these rounds but cannot find the gun to match it!

    Thanks for your time - Rod

    Right now I don't think anyone chambers new rifles for the 7 STW. For the RUM, I believe it's Remington or a custom rifle. IMHO the custom rifle is the way to go for either one; a long range rifle should be the best (most accurate) you can afford.

    If you can get a Rem. Mag receiver from a used gun, and a proper stock (not the synthetic stocks on current Remingtons) to send to the custom maker, you can get close to 1200-1500 (total)...probably. Check around.

    You could easily build a nice Savage in either caliber, for that much money.

    I believe that ruger used to chamber it in the no. 1 but not sure if they still do.

    But, do Savages come in the aformentioned calibers?

    Not directly, but you can basically change barrels in your basement to about any caliber you might want; all you need is a barrel nut wrench and a go-gauge for the barrel you are installing. See barrels at Custom rifle barrels for varmint hunters to serious benchrest shooters. PAC-NOR Barreling, Inc. - Precision Rifle Barrels - Pac-Nor.com or Welcome to Shilen Rifles, Inc.

    For the STW, you could just buy the cheapest savage in 7mm Rem mag you could find, then put a good stock and good 7mmSTW barrel on it and you'd be golden. For the RUM, I'd check with Fred at Sharp Shooter Supply - The Savage Specialists to see exactly what you'd need.
