    Ric,
    What other powders did you try, I am just going to start load developement on my 7wsm (of sorts). not to be a S.I. but watch out with VV 5 series powders they do tend to be throat burners. did you try RL22 or imr 7828????
    thanks,UB

    I shot my 7 wsm yesterday and have been having excellent luck with the Nosler 120 BT and IMR 7828 short Cut. With my 25 inch tube I was getting 3600 fps and excellent accuracy. The 7828 short cut is definetely the fastest powder for the 7 wsm I have tried it in, that is with the 120 and 140 Noslers. With the 175 sierra and 180 berger try some Retumbo it usually works. You have a good shooting Rifle Its always amazing how accurate the WSM are.

    I didn't know that about the VVN powders....

    This rifle just seemed to love it!

    Thanks for the heads up... I'll try a few more powders...
