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

I was sitting down to start to try and reload some rounds for my new Baby!!!!
I have Reloader 33 which ALliant says 85.7 gr under a 185gr speer is the charge for a 24 inch barrel....

Now, I have a 29 inch barrel so I think I can get the complete burn from the 33.... At least I hope... I am going to use Berger to start.. I think I might have some barnes Bullets too but I have to look..... I bought the bullets before I even had the gun!!!!

I have Fed 215 and Winchester match primers.... Gonna start with the 215... .I am not sure how long I am going to load but I followed Ben's advice and his parts list so I think that part was done right if the smith knew what he was doing... I am still skeptical.....

Anyway, I have a few different weights of the Bergers so I am all up for trying whatever Yall in the Brotherhood think will work.. I also have 25, 22, and 19 powder.. some H1000 and Retumbo...

That is what I have right now fellas... It will be a long range shooter and I hope to take it with me to NM for the Valle Calderas elk hunt in October and my Montana Deer and elk hunt in November...

I have some Rem 140gr corlokt that I am going to break the barrel in with.... the smith shot it 18 times and said he cleaned after each but the damn cheek piece got in the way of me taking the bolt out so I SERIOUSLY doubt he did....
so I am going to spend a few days shooting one and cleaning..
then I will move to the reloads after say 40 or the stock ones..

Have a happy 4th to yall.... Thanks to the Military people for all they do to allow me to have my life!!!!!!
Mario

Mario....I prefer the 168 & 180 VLD's over some H1000, and so does my gun. But alot of the guys in here like shooting 140-145gr bullets & different powders, out of their STW's.

I have had decent luck with Reloder 22 as well, although it is not quite as temp-stable as H1000 is.

I have been wanting to try some 25 & 33, as well, but can't seem to get my hands on any...

I have heard good things about 7828 SSC, and I have 1 lb of it, but I haven't tried any yet. Does anyone know if it is temp sensative, or not?

Happy 4th to you, as well.

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

Nice elk!!! Where is he from ???

I went shooting at 445 this morning. 91 degrees. She shot well for the first shot after cleaning. Next 2 were flyers. All about an inch but I'm not happy. I hope it's the new barrel. Gonna try to reload some. 168s over retumbo and 25. Maybe 33. I think my 29 inch barrel should burn it ok. What do you veteran stw shooters think ????

Happy. 4th all

Mario
