That’s true. I’m having a 26” 1-9 Proof Sendero light spun on my Remington long action right now.

Custom 7WSM with 24” barrel runs 150gr Barnes at 3200+ FPS on Lab Radar, 150gr Hammer at 3300+ FPS with .5 MOA at 100 yds. with RL 26 IN MY GUN - still fine tuning. I am currently using Win brass but am anxious to try some of the Bertran brass I recently rec’d.

I just got 1lb of reloader 26 wanting to try it with my factory 7mm wsm an 168 vld’s. Currently trying Retumbo at 69 grains an around 1 inch group for my 2nd load attempt. Anyone have a good starting place for the Reloader 26 with grains?

Reloader 26 is the ticket in my 270 wsm brougton Barrel 26 “ including break 3267 fps 66.7 grains powder 150 berger vld’s didn’t have enough reloader 26 to do more fine tuning it seems to being well though little over 1/2” h 1000 is also a problem to get that’s what I was shooting before re26 got some re23 I may try

Firing the 143gr Hammer bullet in a custom 7WSM rifle with a 25" Bartlein bbl and using a Win case I got:
70.0 RE26 3,221
71.0 3,292
72.0 3,351
However, the accuracy node for this bullet in my rifle was @ 3,200ft/sec using RE23. Sub 1/2" moa groups at 400yds were common.
