I to use the RE-25 and 180 Berger combo. (I was thinking 72 grains, but would have to go check my notes) I tried some other powders, and they provided a little more velocity, but RE-25 provided the best accuracy in my rifle.

Nice shooting, I think I'll order some 175 Accubond Long range. Awesome stats on that bullet. Next weekend whitetail open here. Yeah!

I cant wait to try em out. I use the factory 160 Accubond load in mine with great accuracy. It's one of a few guns I have where the factory load is just fine. I've shot mine out to 1k with great results and saw these new LR accubonds. I sure hope they put them out ina factory load that shoots as good as what I getting.

The numbers on em look really promising and if mag feeding is no issue and they perform like the old ones they will sell em no problem.

I'm loving my STW

I finely got my 7mm stw load down in the teens a extreme spread of 19 and a sd of 6 . bye moveing the seating depth . I think some fps differents comes from my neck tension it seams to be different when I seating bullets I did anneal brass and I just trying out stm media to see if it cleans the in side of the brass just to see if it makes a differents . just used the stm media today for first time it does a great job on the out side of some cases that I found in a bucket of junk I just whated to try it out to see how good it did it did good but on the in side 3 hr was not enough to make it as shinney as the out side

7 STW is my absolute favorite caliber. I relate all the "but it has a belt" comments I get to a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue scotch....."Its not a single malt".......Whatever, great is great.

What North American game can't be taken with the stw? Maybe a coastal brown bear?

I sold my first stw - McMillian rem hunter stock, 26" #5 Krieger, trued rem 700 bdl action. I regret it ever since.

My current is a 700 adl action trued, 26" #6 lilja, bell & Carlson stock. I bought the barrel used 5 years earlier, bought a used ADL for $250 and bdl bottom metal. Gun shoots sub 1/2 moa. It likes 156 cauterucios with 80 grains of retumbo.

Saturday is our opening day of rifle and I hope to drop a nice whitetail.

We all tend to suffer those afflictions when starting out. Look on the bright side, you are saving her from them. I had a great mentor, the same guy that coached me and gave me the confidence to shoot beyond 100yds, who helped me when I started reloading but I still made more than my own fair share of mistakes.

Congrats again.
