Re: 7stw

The 168 wil work fine in a 9 twist. If all you are shooting is medium size game ie deer antelope, then i would stick with the 168s. If you are going to be shooting Elk, Bear and other of the larger big game animals i would go with the 180s. I use the 168s in mine and love it. I am useing RL22 at 77grains. A friend of mine is useing 7828 at 77grains. Work up to this in your rifle. Retumbo is also a good choice for the STW as well. If you email Berger they will send you there load data for the STW
Hope this helps
