I started reloading with a 7mm STW that I've had since 2002... Along with several other cartridges. But the 7mm STW was the first one I ever started with. As long as you follow book manuals and follow safe loading procedures, you will be fine.
Also, this thread is from 2011...I'm sure he's got the STW figured out by now.
