So to me it would be a little more forgiving. As for still build the 7mm STW, I have to 8mm mag actions, so thats not tattaly out of the picture.
You have to remember, with the Norma you are getting similar ballistics with 23.5 to 25 inch barrels that you need a 26 to 30 inch barrel with the Edge. That is the appealing part for me. Not to mention it fits in a normal long action.
