7mm wsm berger 168 or 180 and load data
Well like the title states I just finished a 7mm wsm build. It's a short action rem700 with the m5 dbm system with accurate mags. I think my max oal is 2.990 if I remover correctly. The barrel is a 27 inch and 1/8.4 twist.
Now here's my questions am I going to have enough room to fit the berger 180 vld hunting bullets. There long bullets and don't want to much case capacity to be taken up. Should I just shoot the 168 vld or classic hunter? I would like to see 3000fps out of the 180gr or 3150 out of the 168 class of bullets.
Now my next question is what powder I'm really thinking going the path away from h1000 I'd like to try retumbo. But it will come down to what one I can find first with how hard powder is to find. I might even try 7828ssc
I would like for some pet loads or loads you guys are using with these bullets And powders. Any help on load data and velocity would be great this is my first 7mm wsm so any help would be greatly appreciated.
