Re: 7stw

Thanks for the info.

I have two 7 STW Senderos and haven't really tried the 162 A Max yet----well, actually fired one group at 100 yds, 5/8 in. center to center. That was with a load I just pulled from one of my books---don't have the data in front of me.

One of my other posts mentioned that I got about 100 fps higher velocity (as I remember it) from the Rem. 140 factory load than the catalog showed (on two different chronos).

Has anyone else seen this?
