Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner
Good morning Guys,
Update on the rifle load…
I finally got the load worked out for my rifle,
Barnes 168 LRX
79.5 gr H1000
3180 average velocity
Variance in velocity over 3 shot 10 fps
.5 - 3 shot groups at 100 yards..
In my book the cat’s meow…
I want to thank all of you for the advice on working up this load..
My 17 year old son and I drew buck deer tags in a special hunt in southern Idaho this fall. Shot could reach the 1000 yard mark very easy. I now the gun will do the job.. I hope I can get confident with out to 800 yard by October hunt.. My 3 boys and I drew cow elk tags here in Utah for December time frame..
If everything goes right I will be out of room in my freezer by xmas….
What a great Christmas gift that would be a freezer full of deer and elk..
ButterBean, that is a cool looking rig hope it shoots half as good as it looks. If it does then we should be hearing about all bullets in the same hole…fare better than I can shoot… have fun shooting it..
