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

I just obtained a 7MM STW in a Winchester M70 supergrade, Not a lot of custom stuff done to it yet. It doses have a Timmeny trigger set @ 2 1/2 pounds, a custom muzzle brake on a factory 26" barrell, and a nice bedding job. It is topped off with a Shepard 310 P2 scope and so far is shooting less than MOA at 100 yards. Haven't had a chance to stretch it out yet. So here is my question........I am wondering if anyone has built any good loads with 139 Grain Hornady SST's. I have played with 140 grain Serrias, And 154 grain and 168 grain Hornadys. I would like to work up a good 139 grain load for long range meds for deer and Antelope.

I'd try rl25 at about 82 grains first; work up to this of course. Many of us are having good accuracy with the barnes tsx and nosler bullets (bt or accubond) with rl25 and 215 primers.

I have never gotten great accuracy out of the 139 in the Hornady bullets with my rifle. Tremendous difference for mine with the 140 grain Nosler BT or CTBST. Hell it's worth a shot to give them a try, gets you out of the house and keeps you away from the bar. I have killed a ton of game with the sierra's they have stood the test of time and are darn cheap!

At these velocities the SST is a flying bomb. If you're a big fan of Hornady and want to stay with their bullets I'd strongly recommend using the interbond or interlock instead. They'll hold together much better and give you very good penetration and controlled expansion.
