I'm partial to the 7STW, obviously, but Brent is also right . The 7 -300 is also a great option. How much of that barrel do you intend on using? What is the contour?
Also, you may want to consider the 7mm Rogue. It's a little better version of the 7/300. Check it out in, Rifles, Barrels, and Ballistics, under " 7 mm Rogue" . It's a interesting read, and cartridge.
