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

Hey Guys,

I have been reloading this past year with 140 gr. AB with 85.5 gr. H1000 and had really good results with low ES/ED, nice velocity (3,450 fps) and tight groupings (less than 1/2 MOA) for my two Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs.

I am excited about the new Long Range Accubonds and I plan on buying the 168/175 gr. for my 7mm STWs.

Though I've had good results with H1000 for the 140 gr. Accubonds I've heard that Retumbo is better for heavier bullets, i.e., above 160 gr.

"MudRunner2005" and my buddy "7stw" like the RL powders but Iím leaning towards the Hodgdon extreme powders so what's the best powder out of these two (H1000 or Retumbo) in these bullet weights (168/175 gr.)?

I also posted this in the reloading section.

TIA

I just wish I could find retumbo!!!
My lapua liked it but I ran out before I could get my load finished.
Once my STW is finished ill try H1000 and the RLs

Thanks guys. The 120s are just for explosion factor I am not really worried about the b.c. I bought some 168 and 180 berger hunting bullets to try too. I bought the gun originally because the price was right 500$ and to make a 30-338 Lapua improved but I am liking this stw. I am also putting in an order for 100 PCs of Norma 300h&h brass to make some 7mm stw. I've got 20 noslers right now just to tinker with. I've started reading this post but it will take a while.

Dang, to bad you are in Vegas-- I've got a keg of Retumbo sitting around I have yet to find a use for. I can't find any new RL at present so I'll have to burn it I guess.

Not likely to happen but though if I ever do decide to sell one of them I'm sorry to say to you that my buddy "ButterBean" (Lee) gets first dibs on it and first right of refusal on it.
