    I've done over 100 375's to 7mmstw; you just neck 'em down in two stages (either use a 338 or 300 win die with the shoulder at the correct position for the intermediate) and then run them through a fl 7mmstw die. Trim your casings square and shoot either a mild load with a jambed bullet or pistol powder and cream of wheat (no bullet) to blow out the shoulder. I prefer the mild load route as the other will make your riflle filthy if you do any quantity at once.
    If you use 300 h@h casings you can just run them through the stw die but you will likely need to use a load that is 15% down give or take. I don't know how well the shoulders fill out with 300 h@h in one pass as I've not yet used them, but it is a heck of a move on the shoulder.

    Look for 8mm magnum brass. I had to buy it that way. Just run it in your die and you're done. Midway had some when I bought it.

    Midway USA currently has Nosler 8mm Remington Magnum brass on sale for $47.76 (Regular price $58.99, Save $11.23) And the Nosler 7mm STW brass is $62.99, so it is a savings of over $15:
