    hello, i am new to this forum but have been looking at it for a longtime
    i am having jim see/center shot rifles build me a new gun. it will be a 7wsm with a 24" barrel in a 1and 9 twist
    what i am looking for is some load data hel, i will be sgooting 160gr accubond or the 168gr vld depending on accuracy. the gun will mainly used for deer size animals,but i am going moose hunting,and have an elk hunt planned as well.
    so i would like someone share their loads with me if possible..

    Hi Ronnie, first, great choice of calibers. My 7mmWSM, 9 twist Broughton likes the Beger, 180VLD hunting bullet touching the lands. The Hornady 162 Amax is very good too. I didn't want to burn my barrel up with load development. I found 62.0 gr. H4831sc is great with both bullets. I think H1000, RE-22 work well also. i have not tried the accubond but i bet it will be great as well. keep us posted, good luck!
