Re: Whats Your Favorite 7mm WSM Load

I just purchased M-70 Stainless in 7mm WSM. I am curious if you got any velocity with H4831? I am also impressed that you have tried so many powders.

I am interested in 160 Accubonds which are the longest bullets that could fit in the magazine. My guess is that R-25, VV N-165, H-1000, Ramshot Magnum, Magpro would be the velocity winners with 160 gr bullets. I spoke with the late Bruce Hodgdon about H-1000. He had the powder made for 160 gr bullets in the 7mm Remington Mag.

What powders from my list can you eliminate and what is the criteria that you used?

Are you referring to the M70 Extreme Weather? I was looking at this rifle myself. I finally was able to get my hands on it tonight...although in a different caliber. I just wanted to get a feel for it in my hands. I have been seriously looking at the 7wsm. My only concern is that I would like to shoot shoot the 160 accubonds, and the 168 bergers, and be able to seat them no farther then 0.020 off the lands, and I am wondering if they will still fit in the magazine...or this will turn into a one shot down the pipe as I need it kind of deal.

Has anyone run into issue with them fitting in the magazine, and still being able to have them close to the lands, or right up against as I think the bergers require?

Cowboy,
I'm shooting a 26 inch brux barrel 1-9 twist. I have the 168s and the 162s going 3000fps. They pretty much shoot identical out past 1000.

CCI 200. You can get a few more FPS with magnums, but my extreme spread jumped up in the 20s on my rifle, so I stayed with the 200s.

They will no doubt fit in the magazine. The M70 WSM action is longer than most standard short actions. I have the EW in 300 WSM and the longer short action is what I love about it. I run berger 210's and 230's on the lands and they fit and function in the magazine fine with OALs of 2.996 and 3.010.

Now that Timney is making a good trigger replacement for the new M70, IMO there is no better factory WSM on the market.
