7mm STW 160 grain Nosler AccuBond- The 7mm Shooting Times Westerner, sometimes referred to as the 7mm STW began as a wildcat rifle cartridge developed by Layne Simpson in 1979. It is an 8mm Remington Magnum case that has been “necked down” (narrowing the case opening) by 1 mm to accept 7 mm (.284 in) bullets. This cartridge is named after the magazine Shooting Times where Layne Simpson is a regular contributor. The 7mm STW graduated to commercial status when it was officially recognized by SAAMI in 1996 and quickly gained popularity among hunters interested in open country hunting, mountain hunting and dedicated long range hunting enthusiasts.

Through an exclusive bonding process that eliminates voids in the bullet core, Nosler AccuBond couples Nosler’s proven copper-alloy jacket with its special lead-alloy core. The result is a bullet that flies true, penetrates deep and retains its weight, without causing extensive barrel fouling. The unique white polymer tip resists deforming and initiates expansion on impact. Nosler’s Solid Base at the rear of the bullet acts as a platform for large diameter mushrooms.
