7 mm STW, with 162 A- Max.

My latest addition to my stw collection has a definite preference to the 162 a-max. I have been trying to get the 168 VLD to shoot in it. It DOES shoot well, but the A- Max shoots BETTER. My last load was 75.5 - RL22 @ 3.700. Speed is unknown. Did not take chrono out that day. But groups were very good at 100' and 200. Anybody care to share any load info with the a max? Also, if anybody has info on other 160 gr. That would be appreciated. It seems that the STW's seem to like RL 22. I did have one once that loved 7828 and 150 CT's. Thanks to all!
