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

I would think that this is probably right on for the 7WSM as well. I have a Win 70 CRPF on a Coytote, or previously a Coyote, and I'm able to load 160 Abnds, 168 and 180 Berger VLDs all out to jam length.

Re: Whats Your Favorite 7mm WSM Load

60.5 grains of IMR-4350 and a 150 grain TTSX Loaded 50 thou off the lands gave me dime sized groups. 61 grains is listed book max. I used Fed 215 primers. I haven't chrono'd yet. Should be 3050 give or take.

Re: Whats Your Favorite 7mm WSM Load

I used the 61.0 grains of H4831sc with 168 bergers at the last ridgway VBR shoot out of a savage 16 in 7wsm. I managed a couple hits at 950 and 1k so I couldn't be happier with a basicly stock rifle. I do think there is a second node in the factory barrel I'm going to try next spring.

I wish I could hunt with Bergers or other lead bullets but here in California, (home of the fruits and nuts), its lead free only. With that being said I've been happy with the Barnes bullets performance so far.

Re: Whats Your Favorite 7mm WSM Load

My 7mm wsm in my New Haven ss classic has more than enough room to reach the lands . In fact my 168 berger classics are leaving .185 in the magazine with the bullet hard into the lands. Hard enough that I pulled a bullet out when I unloaded it at the truck. I'm going to try reaming the throat out so I can use all the magazine length with heavier bullets. I can fit 3.05" in the magazine.
