Yeah i know of the 7 stw. What is the barrel life on that? Where on earth can you get brass for it?
Barrel life is probably 1,500+ shots. And brass can be found from Nosler, Remington, and if you get in a pinch you can buy some 8mm Remington Mag and put them in your FL sizing die and neck them down.
Right now brass is fairly scarce, but so is everything else. But once this all blows over, you'll be able to pick up brass online all over the place. If you check the For Sale section here, you will see STW brass quite often for a fair price. For example the other week I picked up some from a fairly local guy (once-fired) for an awesome price. Got nearly 100 brass for about $65.00. And they were all Federal headstamp. And half of them were nickle-plated brass.

The question I have is what is the donor rifle? Some rifles fit cartridges way better that others. If it is a Savage or a Remington I would suggest something off the Dakota cases 7mm,300,330. If it was a weatherby mark V the sky is the limit.
