What type of bullet?

    I have a wby mk v 7 stw and 140 grain remington factory loads shoot 3469 out of it with half inch groups. I can better that with handloads in either that rifle or one of my three custom 7 stw's. It and the 7mm-300 wby are very good rounds with excellent accuracy and performance.
