I remember that Remington used the 9.25 twist in the 7mm Rem; always thought a bit slower would work better (considering the velocity range) even with the 175 bullets that they loaded.

I was just wondering what they were like in reference to temperature stability. That's my current focus.

Any ideas?

Ed, if you are referring to the powders you mentioned, I am nor sure if they are the Extreme powders or not. You might want to check with Hodgdon, they are very helpful people. Take care, and be safe.

Using Remington brass. Nosler 120 BT, powder VV N165 80gn, OAL 94mm, Fed 215.
Very very accuracy load

And talking about nice riflestock then this is #1

GRS-LongRange
We just brought the GRS line to America and it is very impressive!

Your set up sounds like a dream to shoot. I wish we could have easy access to suppressors here!

Don't bother. The 7stw needs 4831 or slower to work well at all. I personally use either rl25 or mil-surp. 50 bmg powder. I want the case full of powder when I seat the bullet. I use double base powder for the extra velocity it gives at equal pressure when I can, but the big thing is slow enough powder to fill the case.

As far as temp stable, the stick, yes, the ball, no.

Thanks Lefty.

Where do get the 50BMG powder you speak of? I am going to buy a Barrett 50 BMG at some point but I thought I'd try that powder in my 7stw for now.

Thanks,
Ed

Usually wideners, but hi-tech, pats, and a few others will sell you a keg for $100 or less shipped stateside. I had i5010 for a while, and it was great but slightly bulky(better in the 7 and 30 rum) and I have wc872 at present. I use mostly rl22 or rl25, but with 160 or 175's I go to slower powder.
