By the sounds of things your a little ways off reloading yet. Best would be to hook up with someone more experienced. Learn how to get max COAL, get some real data, chrony some loads. One thing you NEVER DO is take load data off the Internet with out having real reloading books to cross reference.

77.0grs of R-22 with 160gr Accubonds shoot really well in my 7STW.

IMHO
Im pretty sure I wouldn't learn to reload my first rounds with an over bore 7mm STW. It holds a ton of powder and the ability to split the action in half if extremely hot loaded. Get with someone to teach you the ropes and read a lot. You will love what its capable of doing for a long time with all your fingers in place.

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.
