Designed by Shooting Times gun writer Layne Simpson in 1988, the 7mm STW (Shooting Times Westerner) is based on the original 8mm Remington Magnum necked down to 7mm (28 caliber). With its large case capacity and our 140-gr. Pointed Soft Point Core-Lokt bullet, it delivers greater velocity, energy and bullet momentum at flatter trajectories out to 500 yards than any other 7mm Magnum.
This cartridge takes full advantage of the 3.65-inch magazine length of the long-action Remington Model 700 rifle. The 7mm STW has impressive velocity potential and can deliver good ballistics with a variety of bullets and powders. More information on reloading can be obtained through one of the bullet or powder manufacturers.
Currently we are not offering any factory loads for the 7mm STW
