Powder for 7mm STW

I am new to reloading so any advice would be great. I am going to start reloading for my STW and am wondering what would be a good powder choice. I am planing on shooting Berger 168 vld's. Also I will be ordering dies for 270 wsm soon, is there a powder that would be good for both.

Thanks

    What bullet weight in 270WSM

    I have a 270 WSM H1000 works well in 270WSM when firing 160 gr Nosler Partitions. IMR 7828 works wonders. Don't deviate from printed powder charge weights in the current reloading manuals.

    Berger lists max load of 78.1gr Retumbo/3029fps
    and 76.5gr H1000/2981 fps. I thought this caliber would be faster than this. More powder capacity than the 7 Rem mag, but load data doesn't seem to show that much more speed. Any thoughts.

    I havn't tried the Berger yet but I've tried H1000, R19 and R22. 7828 became my go to powder from 140-160 grain accubonds and TSX's. Keep me posted on how the Bergers work out for you.
