    The 7mm STW is as good as gets for the 375 H@H case.......it figures out mathmaticaly V/E and powder expansion rates..... the 6.5 sounds really sexy and im sure it will shoot like a House afire but I dont think you will find the mind blistering speed you will be looking for .....I built a 257STW(As Im a 2 Bit-06 Nut) and it shot great but when it was all said and done my 25-06 Sendero was rite there with it i got about 150fps more out of the Tamale which to me was not worth the time and effort so I sent it down the road ......had I done the math first I would have just saved my money and got me another 7mmSTW......Just my 2 cents

    yep... works... same as any other bmg powder.... 86gr on a 171-175 will turn around 3K fps out of her; work up of course. Tried it last year when I was working the poor excuse of a rifle I have over.

    Thanks. I was trying to find info online, but couldn't seem to find any anywhere. What would be the max you would go with a 180 Berger? And what kind of pressure can I expect with the 50 powders?

    I'd simply start 10% down (maybe a bit more- I don't know that bullet as I don't shoot Berger) and work into it. I'd guess a top within a grain or two.
