    How high have any of you STW owners went with RL22 and 140 grain bulllets? Nosler lists 75 grains as a max load and getting over 3300 FPS with it. I have seen on some forums of some people going over that by about 5 grains.........any of you have a load that high?

    sll,
    I use 82grs with the 140's and 80grs with the 150's. The case life isn't long but I get good accuracy.

    I load the 140 gr. AccuBonds with 76.0 grs. of RL-22. It generates 3375 fps. and shoots very well in my STW.
