    I used to use IMR 4350 in a 7 Wby and 115 to 125 grain bullets.

    Re: 120 grain in 7mm rem mag load

    My old notes showed 66.5grs of IMR-4350 gave me good groups @3270fps with 120gr BT.These days I'm loading 69.5grs of Reloader-22 with 139-140gr bullets @ 3200fps.My old 1967 44th edition Lyman shows these loads.The rifle used for these loads was a Savage 110,24" barrel,1-9 1/2 twist.From what I've tested,The velocities are fairly accurate,but the pressures may be way up there.The 4831 powder listed is H-4831,that's the only kind there was in those days.As always,start low and work your way up.Every rifle is different.

    Re: 120-140 grain in 7mm rem stw load

    I'd like any help on a load for my 7mm stw for whitetail deer 90-160 lbs, accurate out to 300 yards max but deadly from 0-300 yards. I like to have some meat left over! But I like 1 shot kills too.

    Thanks and happy Thanksgiving.

    Shoot safely.
