Re: 168gr LRX stability in 7mm WSM
Here's what I got from Ty Herring at Barnes....
We are recommending the 175gr TSX load data for use with the 168gr LRX. Also be sure you have the correct barrel twist as most factory 1 in 9.25” to 9.5” barrels will not stabilize this bullet. We are recommending the 1 in 9 twist for those at higher altitudes (5000ft and above) and those at sea level up to 5000ft will require a 1 in 8 twist barrel to stabilize it.
Now I have a Remington Sendero with a 9 1/4 twist in a 7mmSTW, and I live at about 4200ft elevation, and they stabilize just fine for me at 100 yds. I have shot them out to 663 yards with no problems. Maybe the elevation is screwing you up?
