Re: 7mm stw loads

Been using 79.5gr of RL25 sitting on 150 Sciroccos that is pushing out at 3400-3450 out of a Broughton 28.5". I've had good results with 175 SMK's with H1000. What type of twist do you have..I have a 1:9 in my STW and it really likes the 150-168gr bullets the best. However, if you are doing anything out to 800-1000 the 175's really start pulling together. Are you looking for a target load or a hunting load...to me it really makes difference on how/what I load. I find that I can push them a little harder out of Win brass...never had good luck with Remmy brass in my STW...it eats um up.

My favorite load in my Win 70 Classic Sporter is 78 gr 7828 and a 160 Sierra BTHP Gameking. This bullet does not get enough credit for performance. Velocity in my gun is 3263fps. This load holds up well and hits hard.

Re: 7mm stw loads

Thanks for your input fellas, I'm not sure on the twist it's a factory rem sendero stw I think it's 9 1/4 twist not for sure though. I would like to shoot the 168 bergers or the 175 smk's do yall think that twist would stabilize it. Going to mainly hunt long range with it.

Thanks
Nathan

Re: 7mm stw loads

The Sendero is a 9.5 twist. It does stabilize the 180 Bergers. I use 79 grains Retumbo and 3.65 OAL. 3050 FPS This load is deadly out to 1000 yards in my sendero.

That's awesome I would love to be able to try the 180's probably want be able to find any to shoot though, seems like everything Berger has is hard to come by right now.

Thanks so much for the info
Nathan

Re: 7mm stw loads

my best load tested so far is 78gr of reloader-25 using a 160gr nosler accubond and fed 215m primers. Runs about 3150fps out of my ruger no.1 and groups pretty well for the factory barrel.
