I use nothing but sweets 7.62 for that and it's kept my Rifle shooting really well . I'm sorry your gun didn't work out for you but it is a Rifle you would have really enjoyed if it shot well .
He isn't the only one to get a crappy 7rum. I got a lh lss that wouldn't do inside of three inches and also broke 3 sizing dies because of the sloppy chamber they put in it. I gave it back to the shop and rolled the dice on a rh bdl in 7rum; that rifle shot dang well 'till I shot it out.
I went back to the stw as my primary big 7mm until last winter. I found a used lhlss 7rum I figured I would try out. At least I'd have a lh ss action if it blew chunks. So far I've only got one good load with it, but that's enough as I'm planning on shooting it out and re-barreling it anyway.
