Need 7wsm 180gr hybrid loads

I finally got some 180gr berger hybrids and some H4831SC to try out. I am shooting it out of a 26" tube. Can someone give me some load info if you you have used this combo out of a 7 WSM? Thanks!

    I use 60 grains of H4831 sc with a 180 gr Berger VLD in my 7WSM built by Travis with excellent results, usually a 1/2 or better. I do want to try those hybrids though. I'll try and post a group shortly.

    What length barrel do you have? What speeds are you getting? Thanks for the info!

    I have a 26" Rock barrel with a DE 3-port break. I am getting 2762fps. Below are two groups of 3 shots each with H4831sc and 180 berger VLD's. Both groups are in the calipers 1st and 2nd. I am measuring the lower 2nd group.

    Thanks, Travis from R Bros builds a great rifle! The rifle is on his web site. Let me know how those Hybrids shoot. I want to try them in my 7STW.

    For some reason I just can't get my 7STW to shoot as well as my 7 WSM with the 180 VLD's.
