7 STW with VV 570

Has anyone tried this combo? Looking at 180 bergers or 168's

Why Vit?? I get it that they are pretty good-- I have some 540 and 550 on the shelf. I'd go to rl25, rl33, or retumbo though with the 7stw. Heck of a lot cheaper powder that will do as well or better than the Vit.

if you can't find data give me a yell back; I think I have some data that has 7rem loads in it. They (the 7rem loads) usually make good starting loads in a 7 stw.

IMO Vit N570 is the powder to use in the STW. I am shooting 168 Bergers on 81.5grs of it. Have loaded for a bunch of STW's with Vit N570. It has always been most accurate and best performing for me.

That sounds like a mild load another guy shoots that shoots the 180 bergers with that same 81.5 grains. what velocity are you getting with the 168.

I am getting 3300 out of 168's. This is a milder load but it was the most accurate in my gun. I have gotten real close to 3300 out of 180's in other STW's.
