Problem is my 8mm Brass that had been fired will not fit, so if anyone could sell 20 pieces of new brass let me know
Try using a full-length 7mm STW sizing die for the 8mm RM brass.

I only use FL sizing dies, it looks like I'm not sizing enough down at the base, maybe one of those collet dies might work, but don't know off hand where to get one. I do have two that weren't fired and they chamber fine.

+1 for Mudrunner. I have been shooting a 7STW since 1992. Only brass available was 8mag. Since I also have an 8mag it was quite simple to run brass through the FL STW die. IMO, you need to full size, not partial resize. After firing in the STW, adjust the STW die to just set the shoulder back .002 or so.

Re: 7mmSTW Picture Thread

Here is my lefty 7stw I had built. It started as a 7RM, rebarreled with 26" bartlein 9 twist, and a brake. It all sits in a HS Precision stock.

It's been too dang cold up here to shoot but I'm excited to try it out. I'm going to start with 150 grain TTSX I have from my Ruger 7RM. I also plan on working up a load for the 180 grian VLD's.

I need to buy some scope rings to put my VX-3 6.5-20x40 on it. Any suggestions for a set of good steel rings?

TPS TSR rings are what I run. Never an issue. Built just like NF & Badger, and just as strong. But they do cost 1/2 the price.
