Barnes makes a 120 gr TTSX and Nosler make a 120 gr (hunting) balistic tip. I have not used either but have heard good things.

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

Another Range report with my Pop's Remington 700 BDL SS DM -B 7mm STW.

I took it to the rifle range this morning and shot this 3 shot Group ( .24 MOA ) at 100 yards with 140 gr. Nosler's C/T and Hodgdon H1000. This was the first time I shot it after cleaning the barrel so the first shot marked with the arrow was the fouler shot. This load velocity was averaging 3,324 fps with my chronograph.

I keep on getting more impressed every time I shoot my Pop's Remington 700 BDL SS DM -B 7mm STW.

I think I've got the load now nailed down for his rifle and I'm going to stick with the 140 gr. Nosler's C/T instead of the 140 gr. Nosler's AB for his rifle.

Gamehawker, I think you can put that gun and load to bed, and wake it up around November 30th. That is awesome accuracy, and the speed is impressive, given the barrel length. I am really impressed with that rifle, but NOT surprised! Pop will be proud to take that rifle to the field!!

Thanks Bob!

I think I'm going to load up 50 of that load and give them to him as a Father's Day Present!

Oh, and opening day for Deer season in West Virginia (where we hunt) is November 25th this year!

I'm sure Pop and I will have a pile of them that day with our 7mm STWs!

Yeah, that's right, I forgot you hunt in WV. That place is eat up with deer. The part of VA, that is on the southern tip of the shore is loaded too!
Anyhow, your Pop will be all set with that gun and load for sure. No excuses now, Huh?
