Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner
Nice rifle...Welcome to the brotherhood.
Also, I saw your other post...Don't be afriad to try the big heavies in the 9¼" twist. My rifle is a factory Sendero SF in 7mmSTW, and it also has a 26" 9¼" twist barrel. I have no issues stabilizing the 180 grian Berger bullets. I also shoot 7828 SSC powder, use 215M primers, and Nosler brass.
I'm running my Berger 180 Hybrids just a frog's hair under 3,000 fps without any pressure signs. And that load is stacking 5 shots inside a dime @ 100 yards. I wil continue ladder testing my way to see how hot I can get it, and then back it off a little bit and chrono it, to see how fast it is.
