No.1 7MM STW

Ok Ruger guys.I am new to reloading and Long range.I have a No.1 7MM STW Laminate/stainless.I will be shooting berger vld's in 168 and 180.Does any one have any loads worked up that perform well in your no.1? also i have some sierra match king hollow points in 168 and 100 gr.would they have similar ballistics to the bergers? Any help will be greatly appreciated and may lead to a small reduction in the local whitetail population? thanks for looking.

Randy

Re: No.1 7MM STW

While I don't have a Ruger, I will chime in on my findings in my Sako 7STW. I have a box of 168gr VLD's but have not tried them yet but will soon. I did try 140gr VLD's and it does not care for them. My Sako and a previous 700 Sendero SF really liked 160gr Accubonds and that weight range bullet seems to favor the STW in my opinion. My advice to you is to get some Retumbo powder and try it first as that powder seems to be the ticket in a lot of STW's.
