When Layne Simpson invented the 7STW, shortly afterward, he modified it and created the 6.5 STW. I think he even experimented with 6mm, but anyway, he did have a fondness for the 6.5' a little more than the 7STW. Eventually, Remington legitimized the 7 stw. I don't now if there were any plans to make the 6.5 stw a factory round, but I wish some one would have. I saw one in a custom shop a few years ago that was put together right, and I know it would shoot, but it was a timing issue that kept me from buying it. Man, I would love to put some 140 VLD's through it. Look out deer, way over yonder. ( P/S, at one time, Layne also created the 257 STW).I seen this on accuratereloading.com and was wandering what you fellows think.
How do you think this would work? Think it would be a waste of time and money? Thanks
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
