Lefty, the brass situation is no better up here, I did find some brass but didn't buy it because I have some for now, the brass was R-P., I wish I could buy a bunch of WW brass, that is what is hard to find. I did get my EGW #42400 picatiny rail but I am not happy with it, the fit is not right, the base fits the reciever beautifully but the clearance cut under the base does not match the reciever port opening, the rear part overhangs the ejection port by 1/2" or so. this is going to be a problem since it will make loading a bugger, tried to work things out with EGW but they tell me that the only thing they can do is send it back for a refund or for modifications, funny thing is it is labeled as made for H&H actions! It actually fits my standard 300 WM fine but not the STW, not sure which direction I will go from here.
We got to put pressure on Winchester to make another run of brass, there seems to be enough demand.
