Working on a project for 05
Cartridge will be the 7 WSM. Barrel length will be 17-18 inches. This will be used for 1k shooting "handgun class" in Pella, IA and for LR hunting.
Assuming a 2550-2700 (guesstimated) MV will a 1-8.5 twist be enough to stabilize the 175 SMK & 180 Berger?
What about the 162 A-Max?
What has been the favorite powders for bullets in the 162-180 class range?
I'm not concerned about recoil issues as I shoot a lightweight 15.75 inch sporter barreled XP in 7.82 Patriot (mountain hunting specialty hand
Main questions are regarding twist and what powders have worked the best with these bullets.
Thanks for your help guys.
