    Question 7mm WSM Reloading

    Just aquired a 7mm WSM Win 70 and plan on reloading some 175 Sierra and 168gr Begers.........anyone load a 7mm WSM.

    Really like my 300 WSM but the 7mm Bullet BC really caught my eye!

    I like RL22 in my 7wsm. I shoot the 162 Amax and the 160 Barnes xlc out of mine though.

    Thumbs up 7mm WSM

    Worked up a load using H4831sc at 63.0 and 160gr Fail Safe with WW brass and WLRM primers.
    i need to get a 1:9 twist and 26" barrel so i can use the Berger 180's VLD with RL 25. I just aquired a medalist stock next a SS barrel.

    I put mine together and quickly put it to use. 140gr Barnes TTSX bullets. I plan on killing a bear with it next spring and hopefully a sheep or goat.

    NIce meat

    I have some 160gr Fail safes and berger 168 with H4831sc to try. I will most likely use the FS bullet even know the bc is bad.

    Default 7mm wsm load

    I just loaded some 7 wsm with RL 22 @ 62.2 per sierra manual with 168gr Bergers. Looking forward to the range when the rifle gets done.
