I settled up on enough 7stw brass before the panic that I don't need to worry... But the best way right now is forming h@h brass to 7stw or paying up for nosler.

Thanks for the input.
They are in .002 increments and don't let the shell go in the die 2,4,6,8,10 thousands at a time. Same as backing your die off. You can also use them with other mag guns.

I have them.

They work great using one Forster Bench Rest Full Length Sizer Die for my twin Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs.

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

second post and i love the site but love the brotherhood better, but Sorry to change subject. I am building another 7mm stw due to the one we had built in 92 is pretty much smoked. I have the reciever on its way to have another barrel built. So a quickie here. I an looking at a remington varmint 007 contour and at 28" with no muzzy break at this time and will be for hunting more than anything but for some steel too. I will be running retumbo with 180 gr berger vld with a 1-9 twist. Now im thinking of maybe going 30" that if i do want a muzzy on it. From what i see some smiths will cut a 1" to 1.5" and add a break and some dont cut and just thread and screw a muzzy on. What do you all think. Is 30" too much for my thinking? I have not even looked into breaks as it not really priority now. But maybe in future. Thanks fellas a and keep the brotherhood rollin.

The only down side to the 30" barrel is if you are trying to carry the rifle in heavy cover.

Do yourself a favor and get them to leave it full diameter at the breech end an extra inch or so and that way if you shoot it out you can just cut it off and set it back a time or two.

Add a Snowy Mountain Rifles Muzzle brake and you'll be in love with the whole thing.
