i ust started reloading and getting into the long rang stuff about a month or two ago. I also have a 7mm STW and plan on shooting the 160 grain nosler partitions this year. Not sure if there the best but at least its some input for ya.
I load for a few STW's all factory guns worked over and each will shoot 160 Accubonds, Fed 215M primers and 78 to 79 grains of RE-25 seated at 3.60 to feed from the mag. Not the fastest load but very accurate in those guns. Start a little lower and work up. The load has taken quit a few Elk over time. Good Luck, Dave
I don't know my charge but I use a 162gr. Amax on top of h1000 and it shoots and works amazingly well on deer elk bear and coyotes. Oh I guess a few rock chucks too. I think you will love that Stw. After owning the 300rum and 338 edge and the Stw I would have to say out to 1100 its my favorite
I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"
With the Bergers seating depth is critical but the second node will fit and feed from a standard Rem. 700 magazine in my rig. BTW it is an under 8 lb. Rig built for spot and stalk in elk and mule deer country.
WELCOME TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE STW... AND GOOD LUCK
An unarmed man can only flee from Evil and Evil is not overcome by fleeing it.
The proper use of a Pistol is to fight your way back to where you left your Rifle.
The best gun to have? ... The one in your hand when the fight starts!
