what are your favorite 7stw loads

It would take a day to go through the 7stw post on the rifle forum. How about a new post with just your favorite loads? Im fairly new to the stw and would appreciate any advice.

120 gr Barnes TTSX with 82.0 grs of IMR4831 3.60'' COAL
140 gr Barnes TTSX with 79.0 grs of IMR4831 3.60 COAL
Have taken all types varmints, antelope,whitetail,muledeer and black bear. My son used the 140's on one bull moose and a bull elk in 2010. If it was going to be used more for moose and elk I'd work up a 160 grain load but it now serves as a spare hunting rifle in my 2 hunting rifle collection.
M70 Stainless 24'' barrell.

Re: what are your favorite 7stw loads

After using several types of powder I am looking good with H50BMG, 92.5 grains at 3170 average fps 160 Accubonds. I've used US869, Retumbo, RL 19 & 22 in the past with no luck.

160 gr. Nosler AB with 78.0 gr. of IMR 7828 (hot load) accurate
150 gr. Barnes TSX with 80.0gr. Of IMR 7828 (hot and accurate)
Been fortunate with the AB's, others don't seem to have good accuracy with them, this is my pet load and have killed a bunch of deer with it at all ranges.

I thought you would have gotten more traffic by now as well. Maybe everyone is tight lipped on there SECRET formula. Haha . I am looking for some 180 info myself. I think I am going to try those on my new build. Take care.
