Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

Im new to the group but not to the caliber.

Remington Sendero SF...all factory with a new Swarovski Z5 5-25x52 with the brh reticle. I've loaded mostly with 7828 and 140 grain ballistic tips.

Im attempting to get my brass inventory to a comfortable level and im always searching and finding as opportunities arise.

I love the thunder of the Stw!

Thanks, I might give it a shot, if they still have some left come payday. Buying that brass yesterday kinda wiped out my fun-fund till payday. LOL

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!

How do i upload photos?

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

If you don't have a PhotoBucket account, get one. It's fee and easy to setup and use (also set your accounts to private, which I do b/c I don't want my pics all over the place and popping up on people's google searches and stuff).

Once you do, you simple click on the picture you want, then on the right-hand side of the screen you click on the box that says "IMG Code", which stands for Image Code, and it will highlight and say "copied". Then you come back to the forum, right click in the reply box and select "Paste". And it will paste the image code into the dialogue box. Then you hit "Submit Reply", and it posts your picture.
