7mm stw with 168 or 180 bergers

just looking to see what guys have found to be good loads for these in the stw & what kind of velocity you are getting from them.

My load was 79 grains Retumbo, CCI 250, with the 180's. 3050 fps. This load was very accurate in 3 different Senderos.

is it a hot load in your guns? how the velocity spread.iam building a stw with a defiance action & hart 26 inch tube was hoping the 180s would make 3100 but 3050 aint bad.

It wasn't a hot load at all. That's just where I found the best accuracy.
