Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner
I finally got out to the range with the stw. Firing the 171 barnes matchburner with 75 rl25 (rp brass/215) it averaged 2946 fps and .3" even for group. 77 rl25 wasn't so great, at around 2", but that follows the accuracy progression from Saturday, where 76 was 1.3" and 78 was 2".
86 grains rl50 with the 171 also did well, with 3 in two bullet diameters outer to outer, but it was the 2936 fps and needs to be re-shot because some clod with a blade-sighted rifle skipped one into the target on me. The powder compression was just enough that I won't try a heavier charge with it.
