    Quite a few of the loads I have attempted to develop haven't cut the mustard and have never been deemed fit for anything bar shooting at paper. Try a change of powder or try these?

    Regards JCS

    I am using exactly the same load and it shoots really well, have you tried adjusting the seating depth?

    What's the calibre, 7mm?

    I've got 46.7 grains of N160 behind my 6.5x55mm 140gr SSTs, and I can group 5 rounds sub 1"

    As Blackdog said, check the seating... HPS-TR reload for me, and the bullet is WAY out the front of the brass (OAL of 3.110")

    Johnie swinging tits, I have had 2 x 7/08s and could not get these sst to shoot in either. A rem 700 and a sako 75. Changed to the hornady SPBT in the same wt and all is good with the same load you are using.

    Hi, I have now used my SST load on three beasts, well two Red hinds and a Muntjac. I have changed to the Hornady SPBT also as I found the carcass damage completely unacceptable,I have just shot a muntjac this evening (with correct shot placement) and it blew it to bits. They are a superbly accurate bullet and I will continue to use them for foxes but no more deer.
