    Hi

    Has anyone used this action to build a 7mm STW ? Is the action long enough to handle the 8mm Rem Case?

    Would one in 300 win mag have a long enough magazine/bolt movement for the 7mm stw being 1/3" longer?

    long Howas and vanguard's are .375 length action and should work fine in 7mm STW. A more pressing issue is getting brass.

    Get a 7-08 and move your blind two hundred yards closer.

    while probably the logical solution, I loved my STW.
    Hard not to like a 160 class at 3200fps.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with 7-300 win mag.
