7 mm STW OAL

I have a OAL gauge and for some reason all of a sudden i am getting shorter measurements with the same bullet then i orginally did. I am sure it is user error but just curious to what you guys are using for OAL on the 7 mm STW. I plan on shooting the 140 TSX..thnx

Re: 7 mm STW OAL

Are you using bullets from a new lot?
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

TTL 2.84"/MOAL 3.565" versus a Ballistic Tip, Partition, or Game King at 3.575" - you could also try 3.555", but try to stay within that .020 area. Good luck.
