Re: 7mm STW & 180 gr Bergers

I am using 76grns of Retumbo with a 180 berger .005" into the lands on a broughton 5C 28" barrel. This produces 2960fps.

    I'm putting together a 7mm STW with 30" Krieger 1:10" twist. Will the 160-168gr. VLD type bullets stabalize in this set up?

    Yes it will stabalize. Berger actually reccomends a 1-10 twist for the 168VLD.

    Hello Longshooter,
    I enjoyed your comment

    "But one thing you should do, get a truly flat, as in parallel sides, washer or spacer, and when you back off your die the appropriate amount, insert spacer between die and shellholder, raise ram snug against die, and tighten die. This will help to insure alignment of case to die for resizing."

    How about using a brass strip available at most hardward stores and forming this into a flat washer. I don't have access to parallel washers.

    any more suggestions
