Re: Powder choice

IMR4350 is what my bud has been using for the 139gr SSTs. But he is going to go up 168gr MKs or 162gr A-max's and we are thinking that a slower burning powder is going to be the ticket. After doing som more research last night and with the replies that I got here, we are going to give RL22 a try. we just need to figure out which of the two bullets are going to be used!! Thanks for the help fellas. Being new to this sport, im sure you guys are going to see alot more questions from me.

I'm having great success with H1000 in my 7WSM . You should also look into H4831.

Re: Powder choice

I've used IMR-4350 for 15yrs in my 7mags.It's a great powder and one I recommend.I started using Reloader-22 in my 7mmSTW last year and liked it.I decided to try working up some loads for all my rifles so I can use either powder.I have been impressed with the slightly tighter groups I've been getting with Reloader-22.I'm now getting more one ragged holes than ever.
