The win and rem may take slightly different loads, but both are good brass. The win brass has slightly thinner necks, and has different bullet pull as a result. So work your loads in each brass to be sure it works well. I've had a great load in one turn to an o.k. load if I switch brass. The win nickle is a brass I havn't worked with, but as a rule nickle is a bit stiff, so it may be closer to the rem brass that regular win.

Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

I am building an stw now on a 700 action with a shilen select match barrel sendero contour,the action and bolt are being trued, the barrel fluted, a holland brake installed and I just ordered an H-S stock. I am planing on toping it with a vx-3 4.5-14 cds. I'm planing on keeping the original trigger as it's the old one they got sued over and it's really nice, as nice as my other feather weight delux anyway.

Yes you are 100% right, I strongely advise to all 7mm STW users against using this load in their rifles.
