Re: 7STW vs. 300WM for elk hunting rifle??
If you're wanting a Remington 700 action for your STW, I suggest buying one of the new 700 Long Range rifles in 7mm RemMag, and having the chambered opened up to 7mm STW by your gunsmith. While he's in there, I'd have him replace that X-Mark POS with an old style Remington trigger that can actually be tuned, and bed the action, and float the barrel.
Those are a couple of fairly inexpensive modifications, and should help out accuracy.
