It's JSOC back when we our unit crest was twin Unicorns.

When I lived down at Dublin I drove by your old stomping grounds pretty frequently.

    Hi all. I tried posting in the reloading section but didn't get anything back, so I thought I'd try here...

    Howdy all! New to the STW. Wanted the old 8mm mag as a kid, but when Layne came out w/the STW, everything changed. Just bought a Ruger No. 1 that was rebarreled with a 26" Douglas stainless job. Only has a couple hundred through it. It seems to be a pretty fast (3500 w/Trophy Grade 140gr Partition factory stuff) barrel and is MOA for 3 rounds. My question is, any suggestions for 160gr Accubonds or 168gr Berger Classics with Ramshot Magnum? Also, how far off the lands is a good starting point. My max with the A-Bombs is 3.815. I've read that the STW likes a bit of jump...

    They only show to 160 gr data but a 5% drop and careful work up will get you there pretty well with the 168.

    Play with seating depth but let her jump a bit to start with. You may find it wants .150" jump; you may find it likes .010"... It depends on the rifle and you have a #1 so anything flies here as long as the case holds the bullet and the load is safe.

    Thanks for the info. Sure wish I knew what load Nosler's using for their TG 140gr Partitions...I'd love to replicate it.

    I've got some Nosler TG 140 gr. Partitions on the way from Midway. The first thing I'm going to do is pull one apart and check the load. If the powder is identifiable, I'll let you know.

    Looking forward to it. Called Nosler, but no luck. Great guys though. I'm guessing it's maybe 4350, but I haven't pulled one. They're using different powder for the 140gr Accubond though. Higher load density by the official shake the cartridge test

    BROS,

    I have not forgotten about yall..... I nailed a 333 2/8 bull in New Mexico at the Valle Calderas.... Pics to come soon... along with the story...
    I got home and got slammed at work with dead lines so no time to upload pics and type the pic... And, I must apologize ahead of time, it was killed with the 338 Lapua... but she was first and never was able to eat so I had to feed her... My 2 STWs are coming with me to MT on Nov 15th for deer and elk combo tag near LIMA mt...

    Until the story,

    Mario
