I would go with the Nosler Accubond.

+1

Otherwise, Hornady GMX's or Barnes might be another choice...

I have a 7stw with 26" shilen barrel 1 in 11" twist, it would shoot nothing over 140 grains. Best accuracy has been with Hornady 140 Inter-bonds and Berger 140 VLD hunting bullets. Either of these bullets will shoot sub MOA in this rifle. I have had best results with H-1000 and Retumbo. Good luck

Re: 7mmstw witch 140 gr

I'd try all of these and in this order:

150 Swift Scirocco, 140 AB, 140 VLD, 150 ballistic tip. I have killed a few mule deer and about 2 dozen whitetails with the good old btip in 150 grain from my 7mag with some distances being bowrange. No worries.

Just curious, but why did you go with an 11 twist in 7mm? 10T would be the slowest twist I'd use personally.

Actually I'd shoot the 150 btip over a 140 accubond, but that's because I've had over 20 years of success with the btip and never a failure, problem, or worry. I haven't had any experience with the Accubond yet in 7mm.

The 150 Scirocco has also been a real killer. That bullet is just one tough pill and performs exceptionally well on game. It was just a bit more time consuming for me to find the load. Once I did, it was impressive!
