Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

[QUOTE=Lefty7mmstw;801680]Just wondering here "aloud" if MY pipe will eat it I guess. If they say it's a go my rifle may still puke on it. She's pretty fussy.[/QUO

Yea, its one of those bullets that pushes the envelope. Its either the perfect load or a disaster. It'll be a fine line between the two, but its possible.

Let's see what favorites are out there.

Please include what firearm you are using, including barrel type , length and twist.
Also include info for brass, bullets, primers, powder, charge weights, OAL, etc.
If you have a chrono, let use know the speeds you are getting.

Don't forget, anyone reading this, hand loading can be dangerous if done improperly.
Please view loads listed and a guideline and treat any load you find listed as if it is too hot for your rifle, and safely build up loads for your own firearm.
**Just because someone is using the same firearm you are, does not automatically make their loads safe for your firearm**

Be safe!
Has anyone any experience with W867?

I have a fair amount of experience with wc872.. Wideners says it's equivalent to wc867. Right in the ballpark with h870 and aa8700. If you work up your loads as you should you can use that data.

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

Hey guys, just wanted to pass along a little tid bit of info. For those of you that may have a 7 RUM, the full length resizer for the RUM can be made to do a perfect neck sizer for the STW. But , you MUST back it off about .030, or you will contact, or partially push back the shoulder. I tried it a while back, and found an even better way, using a seven mag die, backed WAAAYYY of, but the 7 ultra die will do the same, with NO body contact. Again, just be sure to back it off a little, or better yet, smoke the neck and shoulder, and run it down to the bottom of the neck. 7STW out!
