At 80 grain...lol, ex wife.

Try 160 Accubonds. Those always shot great out of mine. The Berger 168 VLD's are doing great, too. And the 180 VLD's are doing insane in mine.

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

My rifle likes H1000 too much for me to switch up right now. 19 shot good, 22 shot better, but H1000 was the ticket for mine.

I was gonna try some 7828 SSC, but I think I might save that pound for when I get my .280 AI built, and use it in that. That seems like a good powder for that cartridge.

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

So the 1:9 inch twist would be good for the 180? All I have been reading about at the 160-168 grain loads. I want the highest BC possible when I start reloading.
