180 Bergers out of a 7mm STW w/ 1-9 twist.

Has anyone shot a 7mm STW with 180 Bergers out of a 1-9 twist at longrange?
I would like to know if they'll be stable way out there?
TIA,
Wayne aka WAMBO

Re: 180 Bergers out of a 7mm STW w/ 1-9 twist.

I've tried them out of a 1-9 7mm Rem mag and they woulden't stabilize
It is a realy sleek sexy looking bullet
I did get the 168's to shoot strait but I coulden't get a good ballance of enough bullet in the case to match the bullet to land gap

Thanks guys.
I think I'll give them a try.
The STW's case capacity and a long barrel should help them at long range

have used them in a STW 1 in 9 Hart,32" long. Very good accuracy on long [1000yd.+], prarie dogs and such. Seem to get better accuracy if you don't push them real hard.
