7mm stw vs 7mm wsm

what is the difference between these 2 cartage's??
do you have to fire form the stw?
realistically which one is the best?
how is the reloading different between the 2?
should both be done on a bolt action verses a a10 platform?

just thinking of a build and i have never has a 7mm or even shot one so i am a little dense when it come to these.

any comments from people on this form will be taken under consideration.
thanks guys.

Re: 7mm stw vs 7mm wsm

Many experienced hunters feel the 7mm (.284) caliber represents the best balance of bullet weight, trajectory (bc), penetration (sd), and recoil for hunting most big game animals at reasonable distances (whatever that is) with a shoulder fired weapon of reasonable weight.

I Prefer the 7 STW. It's not the most powerful 7, but it's powerful enough for my needs. I doubt if it's available for a AR10 platform, but maybe the 7wsm is.
