7mm STW HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please

So, I have this 7mm STW 26" lrh Winchester model 70 that I am looking at buying. Does anyone know anything about these rifles? Twist rate by chance? If it doesnt shoot decent, I plan on having it re barreled and worked on to shoot 7mm allen mag. What are your thoughts on this?
Thanks guys!

p.s. i plan on shooting a long ass way with this caliber. i have a nightforce 5.5-22x50 nxs that is going to be mounted on top. Planning on shooting the heavier 7mm bullets. 160s or heavier. Long Range, 1000 yards and beyond for range.

Only as far as the caliber, mine's a Rem Sendero SSF. Very accurate, easy to reload for. Great choice of bullets! Sorry I can't help out on the Winny.

I have a Winchester Classic in 7STW. I believe mine has a one in nine twist. It shoots the 180 Berger real good.
