I run the 168's at 3291 fps.....I have run them up to 3380 but the brass only last about 2 loadings. Dropping back to around 3300 gets me 5-6 loadings before the brass is shot. Remember, I have a 29" barrel and a tight chamber.

    Then I should be able to do well with my 30" barrel!

    never shot the 180's in my stw, but have shot 160's at 3340fps with 94 gr of wc872 (its a 26" lilja 1/9) in it and have shot 200 gr wildcats in my 7mm AM at 3200 fps (1/9 lilja also) that went less than 1/2 MOA.
