Where did you read that I do not like the STW?

I like the shorter powder column the Dakota offers. I like the STW just fine, just not as much.

Re: 7Rm vs. 7stw

The STW will not have much separation in a 24 inch barrel. That is what many of the reloading manuals are based on. The STW will really pull away with a 26" and especially a 28" tube because its larger case will maintain the pressure curve longer than the RM can. Also the manuals in general offer a greater variety of loads for the more popular cartridges and will tend to have a better shot at that optimum combination which maxes out the cases potential.
