7mm 168 vld in 10" twist stw ??

Hey guys,
I finally went over to the dark side and got a box of 168 vld bullets for the 7stw and 7rum. Will the 7stw even be worth trying with the 10" twist barrel on it or should I work with these bullets just in my 7rum with its 9" and change twist??

You should be perfectly fine with the 168's and a 10" twist. I don't see the 180's stabilizing... But stranger things have happened.

Are you getting that barrel from that guy?

If it's a Sendero SF STW barrel and you decide you don't want it, I'll take it off your hands.

Shoot me a PM if you have any questions about the Bergers...They can be tricky (finnicky) sometimes.

What kind of load would you use with a sendero 7mm stw with the 168's? I have a little h1000 that I want to use.
