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

I use Federal Premium brass, and have 0 compmaints. I do wish Lapua would make brass for us....I'd buy 5 boxes (of 100) just to help them get rolling along with the sales.

I love their .308 brass. Got 500 of them for feeding my .308.

Anyone have a Lapua connection?

If you haven't already bought the Barnes I'd say give the 154gr interbonds or interlocks a ride first. I've been shooting hogs with them in the 7rem and 7stw for over twenty years and I haven't found anything that matches their performance on hogs of any size or any range.

I shoot 160gr AccuBonds for all my 7mm's, (except my 7mm-08, which gets 140gr AccuBonds). Haven't had a chance to kill a hog with an AccuBond, but a Hornady LeverEvolution from a .44 Mag works quite well.

I have some hornady 154's. what load do you like and what COAL do those bullets like. I doubt if they are like VLD's. I have shot hogs with the barnes, accubonds, north forks, ballistic tips,vld's and all of them are great with the nod going to north fork for outright performance on animals. they do not have a very good BC but 400 yards and in they are the kings. I mostly shoot the others when I am hoping for longer shot.Hogs are good practice and if you are shooting big guys over 200lbs they can be pretty tough.

I really envy you guys who live where there are big wild hog populations. I have heard that in some places there is unlimited "open season" on them. Is that true? If anyone could give me some info on where a non resident could do some of that hog hunting I would appreciate it. It sure would be nice to be able to test out field accuracy & terminal performance.

Here in Alabama, there is no season (year round), and you have no bag limits for wild hogs.
