Layne Simpson always mentioned that in his loads he used win 300 H&H brass to form STW cases in the later articles he wrote about the STW, and I read somewhere about using 300 weatherby brass.

Hello,

This will make your day. I use A-Square rifle company brass for my 30 Super (30 STW). It is formed from 7 STW brass. This brass is as good as any Lapua brass I have or ever have used. I am still on my original 20 cases after over 25 firings per case.

.300 Wby brass is available from Nosler. Forming is pretty easy and I think you'd have pretty good brass. I'm intrigued though by what Chawlston offered up with the A-Square brass and may look into that. Sounds promising.

What is the steps for using 300 weatherby brass? And where would you find the A-square brass? Thanks oldfamily.

The Weatherby brass, you just full length size then fireform. Maybe Chawlston will chime in on the A-Square as I don't know.
