Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner
I've heard lots of good things a out the 162 A-Max, but have yet to try them for myself. I've gotten very good results from the 160 Accubonds in my A-Bolt 7 Mag with the BOSS tuned to 5.0. Load them up with 60.0gr of Reloder 19, and run them out till they barely clear in the magazine. That's how I load mine, and they'll drive nails.
So, for the STW with the 180gr VLD's I went by Bergers recommendations as just a guideline, but changed up some stuff, so I'm not using their published data.
I loaded up 6 of them (2 3-shot groups) with 70.0gr of Reloder 22, and 6 with 75.5gr of H1000. And all 6 at 3.858" COL. So, we'll see how they shoot this weekend.
