Re: confused with velocities very confused
The velocity for the 7WSM does seem a bit slow. I looked on reloadersnest.com and there is one load for a 160gn Sierra bullet with RL25. The guy is using 75gn of RL25, Federal 215 primer and getting 3125fps from a 25" barrel.
If you aren't getting any pressure signs, try bumping the charge up a .5gn at a time, lookiing for pressure and accuracy nodes. You should be getting at least 3000fps. JohnnyK.
