    Anyone use this for their STW. Found a couple boxes at Cabela's for $50/ea. Anyone have a clue on what powder they likely use in these? My gun loves 7828, so unless that's what they use I would likely pull the bullets and reload them. Would like to save the 1/2 lb or so of powder, but only if I can figure out what it is.

    Any ideas.

    Disregard my question. I did a little additional research and found that any guess at what the powder would be is foolish. I'll shoot three and if they group noticeably under 2" at 200yds like my 7828 loads do, I will shoot the rest, if not I will pull all the bullets and toss the powder, and primers.
