If anyone has one can you tell me what they list for 7STW under 120grn pills? I am curious to try some 120grn loads but really dont want to buy a manual for a single test load.

Dallan,
I pulled this data off the IMR Powder website at www.imrpowder.com and these are MAXIMUM loads and should be reduced by at least 10 percent. Hope this helps. All the best...
