7mm stw sendero reloading advice

I bought a Remington sendero in 7mm stw and am ready to start reloading for it. I was wondering if anyone else has this rifle. My question is where to start off the lands, what powder they suggest and how many grains, along with bullet type. I currently shoot Federal Premium whith the 160 gr. nosler accubonds .I didn't have time before hunting season to start reloading. Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated, Thanks

    Re: 7mm stw sendero reloading advice

    I've had good luck with H-1000,IMR-7828,Reloader-22 and Winchester WXR powders in my 7 STW Sendero.I don't load any 160gr bullets in mine,usually 140-150gr.With 150gr bullets,80grs of Win WXR is my go to load @ 3450fps.Reloader-22 gives me basicly the same.I get 3325fps with 81grs of IMR 7828 and 3290fps with 82.0grs of H1000.Every rifle is different so you just have to experiment a little to find whats best for yours.

    Re: switching powders

    Shoot a 7mm RUM, and favorite load of 120gr vmax or ttsx with 108 grains of
    AA8700 powder. my understanding is that 8700 has been discontinued.
    am going to try IMR7828. my question is, is there any diff. between 7828 and
    7828ssc. I understand the shape, metering, etc. will it burn the same?
    Can't find much data for 120 gr. bullets to compare.
    I have 7828. would like any info i can get on this cal/bullet combo.
    I love it for long range coyote termination.

    Damn, that would create a nasty mess of a yote
    Maybe try some Retumbo or US869.

    What velocity are you getting out of those 120 V-Max bullets?
    Any terminal performance reports?
