7mm STW, 79gr start load and work up Retumbo powder, Fed 215, Rem cases, 160gr bullet, you should get between 3250-3300fps with final load, great all round performance for everything.

Re: 7mm STW loads

With 140's,I shoot 80.0grs of Reloader-22.Every rifle is different,so always start low and work your way up.These are book loads from when the 7STW first came out,pre 7Ultra Mag days.
