Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner
[quote=7stw;761455]Trondheim, with the extreme cold, and the new brass, I would try that load again in better conditions. Your load info sounds to be in the range. If I remember corectly, VV560 is the high energy version of the old N160, which is a excellent powder for the STW, and the 162 A Max. The one thing that you didn't mention was your scope. Hopefully, you are using a scope with adjustable parallax, and that you are able to dial in the parallax correction. Was the group cemetrical, or was it vertical, horizontal? all of those variables, or the pattern of the group may help, but I think you are on the right path, and that may very well be a great load, with no changes needed. The group you got under your present set up converts to 6.14 inches. You certainly would not miss a game animal at that distance, and it is right at or about MOA as it is!
I think you are onto a good load.[/
7stw; the scope i am using is IOR 3,5-18*50 FFP mil/mil lwith adjustable parallax mounted on a custommade 20 moa picatinny rail. Speed was chronographed to 920 m/s in -10 degrees celsius last weekend. We have a club championship next weekend, so i hope to do better then. I'm **** to post pictures so if i can email it to someone who can post it ill be thankfull.
