First 1000 Yard Group with New 7 STW

Bought a Remington 700 SPS 7 STW NIB from someone here on the sight. Worked up a load with:

Nosler brass
Fed. 215M Primer
73 gr. Reloader 25
Berger 180 gr. VLD

It shot bug hole groups at 100 yards. Today I got a chance to shoot it at 1000 yards. After one shot that hit 1 MOA high, I corrected for elevation and windage and fired a 3 shot group. I'm pleased to see that it's holding less than .5 MOA accuracy. I didn't use the calipers but the group measured well under 3 inches. Not bad for an SPS with a skinny barrel and a Nikon 6-18 Buckmaster.

    Awesome shooting, nice rig. Those Berger 180's really fly nice out of the stW.

    Had to seat them short for the magazine. Longest I could get was 3.60" but it worked out.

    I was interested in how well the SPS would shoot. Did you have the one with the 26' plain barrel or the one with the factory muzzlebreak?

    Congratulations on the good work!!!

    Been using RL25 in mine, down to about 2lb,reluctant to play around with other loads till I can get more powder.Anyone know where some can be found?

    That's what I've been trying to tell folks, but they keep shooting 140's and 160's...
