Go STW. I've got a sako 995 in 7mmstw. It has a 9.25 twist and hammers berger 180vld hunting bullets running them just at 3000fps.(thats also a light load for the stw) Your bolt will work all that has to be done is the chamber cut out to stw and you should have no headspace issues. It should be a fairly cheap job too being that the barrel doesn't have to be cut or rethreaded.
