Need 7wsm load data

If someone has the same set-up or Quickload could you share your load data or run the numbers.

I will be using 180 grain VLD Bergers in a 27" barrel, Federal mag. match primers. I'm hoping to get 2900 to 3000fps without to much pressure

Thanks in advance.

Re: Need 7wsm load data

Hopefully someone with actual 7WSM data will reply but in the mean time, reloaders nest has a few loads for the Berger180

7mm WSM @ www.reloadersnest.com


I don't have a 7 WSM but I do have a 300 WSM and RL17 pushed 180 E-Tips @ 3190 out of my rifle with a 24 3/8ths barrel.

RL17 might be a bit fast for the 180's out of a 7 WSM, but it might be worth trying. it has a burn rate very similar to H4350, maybe just a little slower. Hodgdon is showing a starting load of 49 gr of H4350 for a 175 bullet.

Cartridge Loads - Hodgdon Reloading Data Center - data.hodgdon.com

Hodgdon's new Super Performance powder might also be a good candidate.

Hope that helps.

Re: Need 7wsm load data

Thanks for the input. I'm gathering all the data and putting it together for reference data. I was definitely going to try RE 17 to see what happens because I use it in other loads, would still like to see actual field data.

Re: Need 7wsm load data

I have a 7-300WSM, just slightly less capacity than your straight up 7WSM and can git to 3000 with a 180gr Berger with a 27" barrel but pressure is a little high for my comfort. Around 2925-2950 accuracy is tops and pressure is reasonable.

I am using H1000.

Some good information and a load map is here:

Yea I was hoping to get 3K but will be satisfied with 2900+ and not burn the barrel up to fast. Thanks for the info.

Re: Need 7wsm load data

I'm getting 2975 fps with 180 jlk's in my wsm in a 28" barrel. The load in mine is 66.2gr of h-1000 win brass and fed lrg mag match, not sure on oal at the moment but if you'd like that I can get it afterwhile. This is extremely accurate in my rifle.

A few other guys are using H1000 and getting good results also, going to put it on my list of powders to try. Thanks
