Guys,

I'm working on a combined 7WSM and 300WSM Cartridge Guide. This will also include the 7mm and 30 Cal WSM necked up from 270 WSM brass (used by Vince Bottomley and Alan Warner).

I need your favorite accuracy loads. Please provide:

Bullet weight and Mfg.
Powder and load in grains
Cartridge OAL
Primer
Brass Mfg.
Velocity
Comments on function, brass life, accuracy

We are trying to cover both target and hunting uses of this cartridge, so please supply both types of loads, if you have them. In discussing a hunting load, you might want to comment on bullet performance on game.

Please post your loads in this FORUM thread or email mailbox@6mmBR.com . Please put "WSM LOAD" in the title of your email. Be sure to identify which cartridge and brass you're using--I sure don't want to have 7WSM loads mistaken for 300WSM.

7WSM

175 Smk
65.0 grains RL-25
2.860" - AI magazine loading length
Federal Gold Mdeal Match 215M
Match prepped Winchester 7WSM brass
2,900 fps from a 26" Kreiger 9 twist in Houston, 2,925 fps in Las Vegas at 2,200 alt.

The Load shoots great. I used it as my 600 and 1,000 yard F-Class load until I got to Las Vegas in May, and it showed signed of being a tad bit too much pressure for my likeing.

7WSM
175 Smk
66.3 grains H1000
2.860" - AI magazine loading length
Federal Gold Mdeal Match 215M
Match prepped Winchester 7WSM brass
2,875 fps from a 26" Kreiger 9 twist in Houston, 2,900 fps in Las Vegas at 2,200 alt.

The Load shoots great. ES below 25, SD below 9. I switched to this load from the RL-25 for my 600 and 1,000 yard F-Class load after I got to Las Vegas in May, slighly slower, but less presure.

I'll post additional loads in a few days when its not as crazy.....

300WSM

I have had 2 barrels in a Sleeved Rem 700 Heavy gun.
Both liked exactly the same load

Berger 190Gr VLD (Moly) jammed into the lands
70gr 2213SC
Fed 210M
Norma Case (.330 Nk)
the latest in a 1:10 Hart 30" gives me 3010-3020fps

Fire forming load of 66gr 2213SC and 190 Berger's gave .250 groups consistently @ 100yds

best group to date is 5 shots 2.7" @ 750yards

1000yd 10shot best to date 9.77" (only fired 4 targets @ 1000yds so far...)

Cheers
