Remington brass is all that I've ever used to reloading my Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs and the brass works great for me. I consistently have 3 shot groupings at .5 MOA with both 7mm STW.

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

I just finished breaking in a new Kreiger #5 in 1:9.

So far the the best load is;

80.5 grains of Retumbo w/ 168 VLD 3105 FPS

82 grains of Retumbo w/ 168 accubonds 3185FPS

I am going to try some H1000 and 25, I am having FPS varriances of up to 70fps, but still holding .75moa to 300 yards. Would like to get down to single digits.

Lands is 3.280" (Ogive measurement) . Best goups with berger 168 VLD is at 3.278. Accubonds are shooting best at .040 off lands.

Stop looking at the numbers .....as long as its grouping the only number that matters is your fps to figure your ballistics........
