Re: Need 7mm stw loads
My 2 working loads were 83 grains of IMR 7828 with a 120 grain moly coated ballistic tip and 87 grains of H5010 with a 160 grain moly coated partition. Both shot 0.75" for 3 shots at 200 yards and shared the same POI. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I also had a good load for the 140 partition with IMR 7828. Never could get my gun to like any of the 150 grain bullets I tried, don't think I was able to match powder burn rate to bullet weight.
The gun was a basically stock 700 Sendero SF with a factory trigger adjusted to 1 pound by Neil Jones. Scope was a Leupold 4.5-14X in their dual dovetail rings. I used reformed WW .300 H&H brass for the 160 grain partition loads and Remington 7STW brass for the 120 grain b-tip loads. Federal 215s all around.
I loaded my shells to the max length for the magazine box; the bullets still jumped over a third of an inch to rifling but it didn't seem to affect how the gun shot.
