You are probably at 75 Kpsi for it to be tough to pull back.
A couple of questions though. Are you fl sizing your brass? Has that brass been beaten up with a hot load before?
Marks on the brass head are never good and are usually consistant with at least slight over-pressure. Before you give in to sub standard accuracy play with seating depth on the highest charge that doesn't give ejector marks.

Have a good one...
He may have too hot a load, but 5/16 as a substandard group?

That's a smidge over .25! Ill take that in spades please.

    yup, I'll take three too please. I stop at 1/2 moa give or take. Most of these rifles will pull out a screamer group occasionally but fall to 1/2-3/4 moa when you really prove them.

    Well Brothers, After 3 days off and on I have read this blog and I feel its time to join in the Brotherhood. I have owned a Rem 7STW w/ sendero special barrel for 5 years and have truely loved that gun. I have allwas shot over the counter ammo but have just recently started reading and studying how to reload. I decided to start with a new to me semi custom 7stw and then get in to reloading. I found and purchased a 7stw sendero with a lilja barrel (1-10 twist),DE muzzle brake, blue printed action and polished triger to 2lbs. I have yet to put my hands on it because its in the mail as I write this. I can't wait to get it and shoot it. So brothers get ready for the questions for Im sure I will have plenty.
    For Starters.
    1. 1-10 twist is better for heavy loads or light loads ?
    2. What the heck is DRT when talking about a shot on an animal ?
    3. Choate ultimate sniper stock. Good or Bad ?
    4. DE muzzle brake or pain killer muzzle break? Which one you guys like?

    1. 10" twist is fine in a 7stw, but it may not stabilize over 168 grain unless it's a flat base bullet.
    2. DRT= dead right there or pop and flop
    3. I've not used a choate stock but I hear they are useable
    4. I like the stw because you really don't need a brake,so I can't help you there-- besides, I'm a bit of a masochist and don't even have a brake on my 300 rum or my lightweight 375h@h-- you'll need to ask others about their brake as I only have a 300 with a boss and it came that way

    I like Nightforce a lot, but they are heavy. That's a major consideration.

    Could someone give me a good bullet recommendation to start with. I'm looking for super accurate and deadly at 500 yds. My gun is a semi custom sendero 7stw with 26" Lilja barrel 1-10 twist.
