Nothing that won't knock your skinny azz over haha, just kidding. Try www.reloadersnest.com, (http://www.reloadersnest.com,) but you should have bought the 7mmSTW, it STILL is a better calibre

Since hardly anyone currently chambers the 7mmstw,one of the easiest ways to get a 7mmstw is to have a 7mmremmag rechambered.It is actually quite a simple procedure for a competent gunsmith.I would however only bother to rechamber a rifle with a 26" barrel.As for reloading data,most of the powder manufacturers provide data online.

I've found some good info here and used it as a guideline for starting points.

Not sure whats up with the gestapo around here, sure seem to be removing alot of posts. I guess we shouldn't believe we can communicate freely here.
Dewie, did you find any good information on any of the links, I find its best to just start from a reliable set of data, then fine tune for accuracy. can be a drawn out process depending on the rifle. I have found some will shoot just about any load accurately, and others that get wild with only a grain a two difference in powder. I had two identacle 30-06's that couldn't shoot the same loads (rem 760 pumps). One liked 57 grains rel.22 and that was it, shot 1" groups at that load, but was all over the map at different loads, I almost gave up on it. Most rifles are capable of shooting better then their operators, its just a matter of bench tuning them.

Once you get a load figured out, go to the Hornady site, there is a great external ballistics program you can plug all your info into and get your trajectory out to 1000 yards.:eek
