Re: what are your favorite 7stw loads

I've used H-1000,IMR-7828 and Reloader-22 in my 7STW.They all performed really well for me.I use Reloader-22 the most,so here are a few loads I use.My rifle has quite a bit of freebore so your may get different results.As always work your loads up.These loads are a little under max for my rifle and are what shoots real well in it.

Reloader-22 - Winchester Large Rifle Magnum Primer - Remington Cases

139-140gr bullets - 80.0grs

150-160gr bullets - 77.0grs

175gr bullets - 76.0grs

Re: what are your favorite 7stw loads

I just got a pound of Hodgdon Retumbo powder.

Does anyone have a load they would like to share with Retumbo powder for 140, 150 & 160 bullets?

Thanks!

Nope,

Not yet, I'll be getting there soon though.I'm going out today to shoot some test loads for a 175g Sierra Game King and Retumbo. I already have a load for 180g Bergers ans Retumbo, but they have to be seated to the lands and I wanted a bullet that could be jumped and seated to box length, and the Berger couldn't be jumped in my rifle.

Hope to post pics later today.

Dan
