Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

Here is a few loads I used in my Sako 75, 26" Barrel 1-9.5 twist.

Nosler Brass
CCI 250 LR Mag Primers

160gr Nosler Accubond
83gr H1000
OAL 3.660"
Average Velocity 3180 fps - SD 15

168gr Berger VLD
83gr H1000
OAL 3.678"
Average Velocity 3176 - SD 11

145gr Barnes LRX

Has anybody used the Combined technology bullets on bigger framed animals?? I have used them for Coues whitetail and some 200# Mule deer with great success, but have not shot any elk sized game with them.

Anybody have any feedback to share?
I am currently shooting a Remington 700 SPS 7mm STW, 26" barrel all stock, my current load is:

74.7 gr IMR 7828
Berger 168 gr VLD
Fed 215 primers
Remington brass
OAL 3.845
3150 fps

Last elk season i shot cow at 675 yrds and she took one step and that was it. The bullet did a wonderfull job, it exited the animal. I am currently playing with other powders, and oal. If anyone has any ideas please let me know!

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

I don't have a load yet, but I have the material.

Was at the store on Saturday, and they had some H1000. I already have RL25, Federal GM 215 primers, Rem brass.

The bullets that I have range from 140's to 160's, with a focus on the 150's. My Ruger No.1 likes 150 bullets.

hoping to start soon on a load soon.

The store didn't have much stuff, as the H1000 was their last one. They had some Federal GM215's, but I was looking for the GM 210's for the 30 06. I had the 215's and RL 25 from a few months ago.
