7mm STW load for 160 accubonds.

I have a 7mm STW by robert gradous. I helped him build this rifle and i am a young hunter/shooter. I do know how to reload but i do not have a clue for what amount of powder or what is the best powder for my rifle. My rifle has a 28 inch Krieger barrel but i dont know the twist. I plan on using 160gr accubonds as they shoot best out of it, better than the 168gr bergers. It is flying about 3600fps and id like to stick around that number. What is the best powder to use for it?

160 accubonds out of a 28" barrel 7mm stw @3600fps? I doubt it. My 7mm rum with a 28" barrel shooting 160 accubonds will only get 3400-3450fps!

How many grains of H1000 do i need? It is a very flat shooting rifle. If i aim a hair above a deers back then the bullet flys over them at 400 yards! i want that same trajectory.

Well first off, I would start with talking to the man who built the rifle, he can probably help with most of your questions, since he built it. Then next you should be getting a reloading manual or two at least, that would get a good start for you.
