Re: switching powders

Just got back from range. had 6 emptys so loaded 3 with rem. mag primers and 3 with lg rifle. 92.5 grains of 7828. All 6 rounds printed 2.5 in hi at 100 yds, overlaping each strung center to hi right string distance was .75 in.
this is right where my old loads shoot (300 yd zero). I was pressed for time so
decided to work on figuring out my stony point elevation dial. It does not match
m.o.a adj. as compared to my hornady cheat sheet, but got me close and can now dial up out to 500 yds. Its a start. 400 is already top of back shot, but more precise now. and 500 was a bit of a guess. Not now
my 8700 loads chrony at 3655 fps avg. with 120 gr vmax. ttsx same.
109 gr of 8700, not the 108 i goofed ealier.
terminal performance? Dont shoot a deer with one, if you want
some meat to eat. I dont save pelts on coyotes so its just nice to be able to point and shoot at anything out to 400 yds. They die no matter where you hit them.
I dont get to see of course but my hunting partner loves the BOOM-SLAM......
its a little bigger than bang-flop.

Re: 7mm stw sendero reloading advice

When I had a 7 STW, I loaded Retumbo and 168gr Bergers just kissing the lands. Velocity was 3125fps for accuracy. I seem to always get alittle more velocity out of Retumbo, than H1000. It is my go to powder if the accuracy is there.
