    Currently I’m having a rifle built by G.A. Precision in 7WSM. It’s being throated for the 168/180gr. VLD. I’m having trouble finding load data for this round.

    If anyone is shooting this round and would like to share their reloading data I would really appreciate it.

    I'm using 65gr of 4831sc and Win Mag primer w/ 168gr Bergers. Shoots around 2950 and works well in my rifle. Hope this helps!

    I tried a bunch of powders in the 7wsm with 180's and has the best velocities and and accuracy with 57grs of IMR 4831.

    Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the info. I assume all of you are doing all the necessary case prep on the Winchester brass.

    What case prep do you do?

    What is your COAL?

    And do you know your muzzle velocity?

    I would like to work some loads up before my rifle is finished.
