    just looking to see what guys have found to be good loads for these in the stw & what kind of velocity you are getting from them.

    My load was 79 grains Retumbo, CCI 250, with the 180's. 3050 fps. This load was very accurate in 3 different Senderos.

    It wasn't a hot load at all. That's just where I found the best accuracy.

    Is that with a 168 gr bullet or the 180? If that is the 168 is that a real mild load?
