that's a good, mild mid range load that'll kill deer a long ways out. I shot that load ( a couple of grains more powder) for years until I went to rl25.

Whats a long ways off I figure it would be good out 400 maybe 500 yards. Using on open fields.

Good to see another 7828 user for the STW getting good results.

I use 7828 SSC and 180 Hyrbids in mine, and it shoots 5 of them inside of a dime @ 100. Alot of people overlook 7828, but it's a damn good powder for the STW.

7828 is a good powder for the 7stw, but there are newer, better powders out there. Back when I had the pressure trace on my sendero, I was getting 6,000 psi+ less pressure at the same bullet speed with sierra 140's and rl25 vs. what my 7828 load was developing. I'm not saying 7828 is a bad choice and I do use 7828, but it's usually in a 270win or 300win where you aren't quite as overbore and the powder is actually rather slow for the cartridge.
