Re: 7mm WSM loads

I have bought 200 of 175gr matchkings to try. But the next hurdle is finding more boom dust. I've got about 1/2lb. 4831sc left. Been watching but it disappears by the time I hear about it.

I'm shooting 65.5 grains of H4831 with a 154 gr. SST with very good results. Probably one the best loads I ever had for any rifle. Good luck with your project.

Re: 7mm WSM loads

I have a PGWDTI chambered in 7 wsm with a 1-9 Krieger. Maybe it is just my rifle but it shot everything well but nothing really well. That is until I tried the 180gr Sierra Matchkings. 66.9gr of Reloader 25 with Federal 215M primers and phenomenal groups were rollin. I am regularly getting sub 1" groups ay 300m.

I have found in this rifle and many others that trying to get the Berger VLDs to work can be both frustrating and sometimes futile. As my friend(and gunsmith) once told me: "I'd rather be shooting my rifle than trying to get my rifle to shoot." This is why I shoot Matchkings in most of my rifles, especially barrel burners, they are easy to load for and get your rifle up and runnung quick.
