I'm new to reloading first off. My current project is a Rem 700 varmint 26" sitting in a HS precision sendero stock.
Thus far I've tried 139 sst, 140 bt, and 120bt . All under w760. It didn't like any.
Any recommendations is appreciated. Thank you

I have a few pet loads with 140 gr. Barnes TSX and one with 150 gr. SMK's, also one with 120 NBT's, all using Varget, I'll post them when I get home over the weekend.

Every single one of these loads produced 1/2 MOA or better at 100 yards. I have a load for the 140 TSX but don't know where I wrote it down at. I hope this helps.

Thank you gentlemen. I picked up some H4350, RL15, and Varget. I'm going to give them a try along with some different bullets.
Again thank you for your time.

My pet load is 120gr ballistic tips with 49.5 grs of H414 and CCI BR2 primers. Best 5 shot
group to date was .053 in a custom 22 " 1 in 9 Lilja HBRT barreled Model 7 Remington.

This load is hot if the temperature is above 90o and will chronagraph @ 3152 ft/sec.
But in 50o down it is 3010 ft/sec. (Does not seam to effect accuracy though).
