Bob, Should we be posting in the new forum? I'm confused with this? Maybe start threads on subjects categories of the 7stw., bullets, scopes, pictures, etc.?

From a quick numbers dump into the hornady calculator, my nosler bonded actually shoots 5% flatter to 1000 yards even giving the 200 grain 2900 fps to start with; that may be a stiff push for the stw.
The 140's are easily launched to about 3400 fps in an stw, so that's what I tossed in. I used .920 bc on the 200 which was found in a thread here. I used .485 bc for the 140 which is noslers book#.
The 200 has a SIGNIFICANT energy advantage (1700 # ft to 800 # ft), but the 140 still has enough energy to get 'er done as far out as I'll whack a critter.
I'm not entirely sure a 9 twist at 2900 would spin this pill enough... perhaps someone with a stability calculator handy would chime in??

Ed, I believe the New site is for pix and short stories. As far as I can tell, this edition is pretty much as it was before the new one. So, here, I believe, it is ok to start topics, or talk formulas, scopes, bullets! I'm with you on the confusion, I'll stay here, it's simpler!

Gunsmith, congrats on the new build. And I know what you mean about the Nightforce scopes. I recently had my paws on one at a Gun show recently, and I had a hard time putting it down. That little Gem was $1800.00 bucks the hard way. That DID help me put it down. In the mean time, I'll settle for my Leupolds, Nikon Monarchs etc. I even have a few off brands that suit the purpose til something else suits.
What action and barrel did you go with?
PS, " Welcome to the Brotherhood"! Enjoy the ride.
