    I am having one built right now.It is on a Rem. action w/Wyatt box,with a Krieger(26") barrel.I am planning on trying Horn. 140 A-Max bullets first and go from there.Sorry, no real experience here,but it should be done in a couple weeks,and I'll be able to shed more light on the situation then.

    Which High-End Spotter to Buy?

    Another vote for the Pentax Pf80Ed.I bought one last year and have nothing bad to say about it.For the $ its great,but if I had to hike alot,I would also have a more compact spotter for that.Usually what I use it for is shooting out to 700(so far) I didnt have the $ to spend on the...

    Sako TRG-S M-995 build-up?

    I cant remember offhand,but I think we put in a Rem. lug.I also put on a Limbsaver pad,and got my gunsmith to reinforce the front sling swivel stud with a piece of metal underneath as this seems to be a weak spot on the rifle.

    Sako TRG-S M-995 build-up?

    I have a 7 STW built on a M-995.I used the original stock,and a 28" Hart barrel.I really like the action.They also have a good magazine,and a really nice trigger.Dont see them around too much.I think they stopped making them.

    7STW & Sierra Gamekings?

    Hello Everyone, I'm wondering if anyone has practical experience with 175 GKs in a 7STW?I have Retumbo,RL 25,and H1000 on hand,and am hoping I can get one of these powders to work.This load is going to be used primarily for LR whitetail and mule deer. Thanks

    Your opinions on 7STW Scope

    Hi, I also recently had a 7STW built on a Sako action,with a Hart barrel.I too have been trying to decide on a scope to use.I finally decided on a Leupold VX3 8.5-25x50 with fine duplex reticle.I do not plan on using this for anything longer than 5-600 yards this year,but figured might as...

    Internal adjustment on Leupold scope?

    Hi Guys, Does anybody know how much internal adjustment there is on a Leupold VXIII 4.5-14X40.I might have to use this scope on a 6.5-284 for a little while until I can afford a different one. Thanks for your input.

    Question on A-Max bullets in .243

    I bought some 105 gr. A-Max bullets to shoot in my CZ 550(1-10 twist I think) .243.I don't have a Hornady book so I was using info for the Sierra 107 gr. MK bullet.The only powder I've tried so far is Varget.I now realize that my 1-10 twist might not work for these bullets.My first group was...
