Re: Best 7MM WSM loads?

Mine loves RL-25, but not the summer heat in Las Vegas, so I now shoot H1000, with the exact same loads and velocities as reflected above with 66.3 H100 with the Berger 180s and the Sierra 175s. I tested Retumbo, and got 50+ fps more velocity with safe pressures, but did get a chance to test for accuracy - that is next on my list

Re: Best 7MM WSM loads?

Try H4831 long or short cut. 62.5 gr and a 180 JLK gets me ~2927. This load is 1/4 moa capable as long as I do my part. Have tried H1000 and H4350 as well. All of the powders tried were accurate, and gave good speed. The load above is a lower pressure load in my particular rifle. Yours maybe not. Did the above load with 168 Berger as well and it shot the same hole.

I value accuracy most of all, however, insensitivity to temperature is a very close second. My 7WSM is set up a little different than most, but I believe any of the accurate loads I have found others using and worked up to were accurate in mine as well.

Re: Best 7MM WSM loads?

Not wanting to hijack this thread, but since it is titled
Best 7mmWSM loads....

Does anyone have a pet load for the 154 SST or 160 Accubond?
I'm building another 7WSM and plan on shooting one of the above, preferably the SST if it's accurate.

Esorensen, can post a pic of your rifle. I have a feeling it is set up like mine.

Its soul purpose is shooting from 500 to 2000 yards.

For faster results, give me your email. I have yet to set up an account with photobucket.
