7stw... 3400-3500 fps with a 140..... 3,000 to 3,100 fps with a 175; both depending on powder used and bbl length a bit.

No experience with the 7lrm.. I've got nearly 500 stw casings loaded so I don't have much interest in a change either.

They are both going to be close ballistically. STW 92.7 H2O capacity, LRM 88.1

The 7 LRM is a 7/375 Ruger wildcat created by Gunwerks. It is proprietary and you get the reamer and brass from them for a reasonable price. The reason I like better than the STW is..

Better brass - Hornady annealed vs Rem or expensive Nosler
Shorter case, 2.534 vs 2.850, more friendly to loading long high BC bullets for a repeater
Better (more efficient) case design, sharper shoulder and longer neck
And.... I do not care for belted cases

Yeah, sounds like you're closer to PC or Destin.

Like I said, if you pull that barrel off, or if you don't like it for some reason, let me know.

Come join us over in the 7mm STW section of the forum to learn more about it, or if you have any questions about loading or anything.
