    I know of two guys shooting it in factory Rem tubes. One in a STW and one in a 7 Rem. Both are shooting lights out. I find it quite odd that the guy shooting the 24" Rem mag is getting more velocity than the 26" STW. The STW shoots little bugholes @ 2950 fps so the guy just didn't push it any more.

    What about the 175gn Sierra in the 7mmSTW Sendero? Will it work?
