Re: Best 7MM WSM loads?
I shoot about 69 grains Retumbo under a 180 Berger seated .005 in the lands lit by a CCI BR2 in Prepped Win cases.
It is good for sub 1/2 MOA and 2985fps.
It is bad for anything it is pointed at.
Another good load is 64 gn H4831sc behind a 162 a-max about .003 in the lands lit by a CCI BR2. This load shot great, but the a-max is a little fragile for elk, and may completely destroy the shoulders of a whitetail, pronghorn, ibex, etc. It worked good! Nothing got away.
The next 7mm WSM build should be done shortly and I'm gonna try some 154 SST's and interbonds in it due to short mag length. It will be a mid range gun anyway that won't weigh much. Hope to have it shootin soon.
If you are cramming them in a short action, they will be seated deep. Just part of the equation. Long bullets, long case, short mag box equals wierd feeling for the first few you seat. It goes away after they shoot lights out.
As the usual fine print: these loads may be dangerous in any other firearm, start with a lower powder weight yada yada yada.
