Is there anyone who reloads for the 7mmSTW cartridge and if so what are some of the powders that work best for you. my father just bought one and wants me to load for him, he says (in his words) he' not going to shoot store bought junk in it ,)

well i know that some of my loads with RL19 75gr, and 140 gr ballistic tip are clocking 3345fps average with an average spread of only 28fps. and it seems to like the reloader so i might stick with that. thanks guys keep the advice coming.
