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

I dont know how to search within the brother hood and I have several of you on PMs and email but I wanted to see what load yall are using. I have 180 gr berger and 168 accubond LR and 168 barnes. I know brother Butterbean loves the barnes and I have to agree the idea of that bullet in interesting. But I wanted to get an idea of load and OAL that yall use. I just measured mine with the Modified cases I received from MT (thanks a bunch!!!!)

I measure close to 4 inches!!!!! that Just seems LONG!!!! 3.960 with berger 3.990 with Accubonds. To the tip.....

So what powder and depth you guys that shoot this beautiful cartridge regularly using ( muddrunner????)

I have retumbo a little bit of h1000, rl 22, 25, 33 and H4831. also Fed 215 primers.

Thanks a bunch and I look forward to the ideas and where I should start...

Mario

I'll have to look when I get home...I was shooting the 180 VLD's against the lands, and decided to back it off .030" to see if that will help reduce the excess pressure signs I have been getting. But haven't been to the range to check yet.

I'll check when I get home this evening and respond back with a number.
