Another reason is I have a scope with a custom reticle designed for .617BC at 3285fps. with lines to 800yards

    Where did you find the data you posted for the 7mm STW using VV570. I do not have a VihtaVuori reloading manual. There is a gun show in Albuquerque this weekend, and might pick up some VV570. Thanks.

    I got the info from friends at Mcwhorter rifles. N570 was specifially designed for overbore cartridges so it is great in the 7 ultra. 300 ultra, stw, and others.

    3300 fps with a 180 class is damn stout for a 7stw; you must be using a loooong barrel to get there. I have seen 3100 fps or so with that weight range and that's it with 24-26" pipes.

    Sorry I cant help with any loads as I only shoot a 7mm WSM. I was wondering if any of you shooting these 180s at very high velocities have had them start to blow apart from high rotational speeds? If so, what sort of speed and twist rate did they start to blow apart at?
