7STW & 168 Bergers

I am going to start trying to find a load for my STW using 168 Bergers and some H1000 & some RL-22. What's everyone's loads using these? Or about how much of each powder should I start out with when starting to work up a load?

E-Mail Berger with your question and they will send you some load information.

Works for me.

I've had good luck with the 168 VLD's and IMR 7828....


Best of luck to you.

I have been just tinkering with the 140 accubond with H4831 now working up loads with H1000. Was thinking bout stepping up to 160 accubond. Cant wait to see what you come up with. Because as of yet i dont think berger makes a 140 or 150 for the 7?

Been using the Berger 168VLD over 80.0 grains of H1000 in my Broughton barreled 7STW with great success. Load is fine in my rifle but as always ymmv. Start under and work up.
