7 STW Powder choices

Getting some info for the brother in law. Going to shoot 160 grain bullets in Rem 700 in 7mm STW.

Give me some thoughts on powder choices with all the newer powders out there.

Thanks in advance,
Get as close as you can, but utilize your skills as needed.

Re: 7 STW Powder choices

In my Hart barreled Rem Sendero 7STW I have been regularely shooting .5moa @ 200yds with Nosler 160gr Accubonds and a max charge of IMR7828.

I'd prefer to use one of the Hodgdon "Extreme" powders but the 7828 is just shooting better so far. H1000 is typically a good choice with a 160gr bullet in the 7STW.

For 160s, I used 87 grains of H5010. Think it's out of production now.

Flex is for people who don't have lockers.
