    Re: 7mm stw loads

    Thanks again guys for all of your input on the stw. Finally got to shoot some last sunday I think I'm going to stick with 168 Bergers. My load was 78 gr of h-1000 w/fed lrg mag primers 3075fps, load shot right at 1" at 250 maybe I can stretch it out once they cut the beans.

    Thanks again fellas

    I get more velocity out of Retumbo than H1000 and approximately the same accuracy. 168 gr smk / 79 gr Retumbo gets 3200 fps out my Remington 700 with a 1/9 twist Shilen barrel. I could probably push them a little harder and eek out 3300 fps with the Retumbo.
