    I have an opportunity to purchase a Remington 700 in 7mm STW. Guy wants about $750 for the rifle only. Best I can find is that Remington made these for about a year? The online stats look pretty darn good. Its a burner for sure. Here is a snipet of what I found:

    The ballistic performances based off five grain types for the 7mm STW on a 26 inch test barrel for muzzle velocity are 3,384 ft/s (120 gr), 3,268 ft/s (140 gr), 3,233 ft/s (150 gr), 3,177 ft/s (160 gr), and 3,047 ft/s (175 gr). The 7mm STW was first cartridge named for a gun magazine (Shooting Times Magazine) and Layne Simpson was the editor of STM at the time 1979.

    Any info on the cartridge, rifle or price of rifle would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd ask how many rounds have been fired through it ? Also for a recent target so you can see what kind of MOA it's shooting.

    Got a little more info on the gun. Roughly 200 rounds through the gun per the owner. It has some scratches and dings but overall pretty clean. It has a muzzle break and scroll work on the side of the action. He is not sure of the model but it does have a detachable magazine.
    As far as accuracy is concerned no clue. He states he has not shot the gun in about 5 years and claims the gun was made in this caliber for only 1 year.
