Hey guys I have a Ruger #1 chambered in 7x57 mauser and I am working a load up for it. I have some 160 gr. Trophy Bonded Bear Claw bullets and some 154 gr. Hornady SST bullets to try out. The rifle didn't like the 140 gr. Accubond, the best load that I could get was just over a inch, but I think that I was over spinning the bullets to an extent. I also have some Vihtavouri 135 and 140 to try out. I can't find load data for those particular components and I was wondering if any of you guys had ever messed with any of this stuff? Or should I try to stick with IMR 4350 or 4320? I should add that I am planning on hunting mule deer and elk with this round.

RE: 22 Creedmoor vs 220 Swift
Wow that is awsome! What is the difference between the 22 Creedmoor and the 22 Cheetah? And what could you expect barrel life to be? I am just kind of getting in to "long" range. My average shot on coyotes is between 200 and 300 yards and about the same on crows. I need to get some better glass if I am going to reach out farther consistently.
22 Creedmoor vs 220 Swift
Hey guys, I'm brand new to Gunhive and I came by references to the 22 Creedmoor. I have a Remington VSSF chambered in 220 Swift that I am not impressed with the accuracy with (it's about 3/4) MOA, so not terrible but not real impressive either. I have been thinking about rebarraling it to a 6 or 6.5 creedmoor to make a long range varmenter. What would be the advantages or disadvantages of a 22 Creedmore?
