Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

It seemed like alot of the loads I got from Berger were on the low end.

But I will keep working with RL-25 and keep working my way up and see where it takes me.

    What kind of velocity are you getting with this load?

    Iam dealing with the oal length now , its normal to have the deep throat . set it so they will load fine then work on the loads with that length , some guys load them long and single shoot them

    a good writeup on getting your coal set ,

    I had to go to my load book,this load was tested in late November.It was 42* chrony @ 10ft.,I ran 9 rnds. 3103-3114.Says best group less than 1"..........Hope this helps you.I shoot only the GS Customs now for all my hunting,they out perform all others at the same wt. my 130gr.GS load shoots faster than the 120gr.Barnes TSX,both with 80grs.7828ssc....

    My coyote load with a 116gr.GS Custom(and I have been called just short of a liar on this one)80grs.7828ssc goes 3920. When I put just a little more powder I got over 4k.My green chrony has not been known to lie......

    not a 7mm but just bought a 270 STW used w/ 150 rds of 8mm resized w/ 150 gr partitions and load data shows 3450 fps w/ a 26" barrel. So can I join? Can't wait to load some 165 Matrix in it think I should get 3300 fps w/ them. I'm sure it won't be long before the barrel is shot out then it will be a 7 STW
