I'm a big winchester brass fan and i have a 7mm barrel on order .

I had thought about going w/a 7 dakota but now - i'm back leaning towrds a 7 stw.

For the price winchester brass is hard to beat so that's where my interest is.

Winchester no longer producing

Just got off the phone with Olin Brass, they said they are no longer making 7stw brass because demand was not there for it. The person said the round could be returned to production if demand was high enough. The person that I talked to stated that the demand would need to reach 3 to 4 Million pieces to justify production costs. So it might be that people will be forced to use Remington brass if one can not find a supply of Winchest brass. Oldfamily.

Just great, I finally find STW brass that will last more than three firings without enlarged primer pockets and now they are going to quit making it, seems about right.
