Thank you, I will start lower and work up from there. My book doesn't list 7828ssc.
You can also check Nosler data
Hodgdon loading data, and Your bullet manufacturer.
Data will vary signifigantly

How many grains is your max? I'm just starting to work up a load for mine and any info would be helpful...Thanks

Book max with Mag Primer and 180TSX  is 85.  I am using CCI200 (Not magnum primer) and I am still way under.  I could probably find another "faster" load but I am happy with that

Retumbo. Who uses it ? 180 grain bullet. I have IMR 7828 SSC

I use IMR7828ssc with 180 bullets in one of my MKV rifles.  Under half inch at 200 yards

180 TSX works great with IMR7828 I actually use CCI200 primer for that

I have 4 MKV various vintages and countries or origin.  ALL are sub MOA, one with 180 Nosler BT, one with 180 Barnes TSX  (this is one 0.4 2 200 yeards) one with 200 Nosler PT and one with 200 Nosler AB.  Last two with RL22, first one with IMR4350 and the Barnes with IMR7828.
There was a batch of Weatherby and Hornady Ammo that neither two of my friends nor I could get to shoot MOA or less.  We just pulled the bullets for the brass.

Thousands of pistol rounds, this is my venture back in to Rifle
85, 85.5 and 86 grains of H1000 , Barnes triple shocks 3.6000 OACL... all chamber without issue.
Redding Dies and my Dillon 550 though it was one step at a time
will see what the target and chrono tell me...

didn't like the pics I tried to post...
I have one rifle that really likes IMR7828SC with 180TSX and CCI200
I have loaded with IMR4350 (180 BT) and RL22 (300 AB and 200 PT), four rifles, different load for each

A quick search says Remarms owned by Vista outdoors is making the rifles. No mention of any Ruger involvement!

Yep!  They also own Federal and CCI, Bushnell, among others

I took a couple rifles to check and a couple to crono and order dials for. Pictured because they were worth it (blue target) is my 7mm STW LH Accumark and white target as labeled is my 300 Wby Backcountry.

7mm stw - 195 grain EOL - 2830 average on the gun
300 wby - 180 sirocco's - 3260 on the gun
6.5-300 - 130 sirocco's - 3450 on the gun

Three shot averages listed above all were very tight IMO +/- 15-20fps range. First time really playing with this stuff, but I sure dig the accuracy in these rifles. The 6.5-300 shoots a half inch group itself and it is the original backcountry model green/tan stocks OG :)

Cheers - Donnie

Nice shooting. That 300WBY has been my favorite for a few decades now. 

Rifles / Re: Letter from Adam

Well I wouldn't get to offended by a web based email distribution message, it wasn't a personal letter by any means much more of a press release statement. If they have your email contact info and your in the database you got the message and yes it will be non-reply. They couldn't handle that much mass data transfer, it's one way communication. All big companies and and governments use this for communication.

My hat is off to anyone who leads their company to meet consumer demand and build products to be a profitable company and keep employees in business. You can live or die by the sword and when you see an opportunity, you better capitalize on it or someone else will.

The biggest issues with the wood stocked rifles is when newbies get one they don't want do do anything with it but look at it? It's too pretty to hunt with! LOL - I have a safe full of guns my boys will probably never take to the field! How to you justify building tons more of those! :) It's good conversation piece, I thought it was cool that adam acknowledges and loves the history and legacy of his families company, but times do change. My encounters with his company has always been met with class and that means people enjoy where they work. That speaks volumes to me;


I too love wood stocks, however, only have 4, a German MK V, 2 M70 Classic and a Ruger M77.  All the rest are synthetic and stainless so I can take them aywhere, knock them about and not worry about the scratches on the stock.

Back to WBY, anytime I contacted them on the customer support site, they have always been very responsive.  I don't have any issues with that. I had requested hitory on my rifles and had it within 2 hours.  That was impressive.

Finally, I just don't like anyone sending me a mass email I can not reply.  I usually unsubscribe after that.  But thats just me.

MKV and M70 are my favorite actions.  Unless I start buidling rifles, I can't see myself getting a Remington style.  Thats just a personal preference.

Cheers, or in our case, Giggem Aggies!  WHOOP!

save your picture with less pixels.
Also, another place to look for pillars is scorehi.com

I assume most if not all of you received a letter from Adam explaining the reasoning of the 307.  I did try to reply, and express my personal opinion that he did not owe us explanations why and how he is trying to grow the business.  My hat off to him.  My email bounced back, now that I Did Not Appreciate.  If anyone is able to send us a letter, we should be able to respond.  Otherwise, just post it in the forum.
I wish him and WBY the best

I am not familiar with the Weathergard, but if it has an aluminum block in it, it most likely have pillars, they are just short.
I have Accumarks, and I just skimm bedded one recently, waiting for range time now.
If it has the block, I wouls suggest researching about skimm bedding and doing that instead.
Just one mans opinion.

Curious, since the 9-lug had two versions, investment casting first and then the forged? in Germany, would that cound as two different actions or still the same.  I don't know, just asking

I am happy they are diversifying.  I am kinda purist if I buy factory.  Marck V 9 lug, M70 CRF...you get the my point.
