Default 7mm STW offerings

Does anybody know the current gun manufactures who offer Rifles chambered in the 7mm STW? I looked around and think that this cartridge is being buried.

Thanks.

Is it being replaced by the 7MM RUM?

That's what I'm thinking. Those RUM offerings seem to be the talk of the town.

I know Ruger still has a #1 chambered in 7mm STW.It is the Stainless with black laminate stock. AndWeatherby and Sako used to make rifles in STW, they still might. Remington and Winchester also produced rifles in that caliber, but I don't think they do anymore. I would imagine the STW is going to the wayside. Between Remington's 7mm Ultra mag, and SA Ultra Mag and the winchester short mag people are loosing interest in the STW. At least that is the way Remington and Winchester probably see it.

I got one of the last sako STW's. I am glad. Even picked up a new take off barrel chambered in STW off gunbroker for 50 dollars. I have seen ammo available all over. And tons of brass. Its still cheaper to reload than the RUM. I like the RUM, but like my STW also. Wished it didn't have a belt, but hey it was a great price.
