Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

Here you boys!!!

I just got a notification that Midway has Nosler 7mm STW brass.

Nosler Custom Reloading Brass 7mm STW Box of 25

FWIW, I like the Remington brass that I currently use in my Senderos so I'm not going to buy that pricey Nosler 7mm STW brass.

I got the notification, too...But I already ordered 75 of them from SPS last week. Can't wait till they get here.

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

I'm not in the market for stw brass at present. I just looked at what I've got, and I've got 372 rounds loaded and over 100 casings ready to stuff. All are 2x fired of less. Good luck to those of you that need the stuff at present as only nosler really seems to be available lately.

the 50 cal surp powder is a good choice for heavies in the 7stw. I've shot a good bit of it. 86 grains of 5010 or 872/8700 is a normal top end for 175 grain bullets.

Re: 7mm STW Reloading Thread

With the magnum's and an stw, the faster speeds reduces the need for lower twist. That's what a custom bullet maker told me anyway. 1-9 in the stw is all you'll need.
