7mm WSM brass

Does anyone have an opinion on whether you can resize 270 wsm and 300 wsm brass to 7mm wsm brass? I know there is a different headspace for the 7mm than that of the 270 and 300.

    If you are resizing 270/300 WSM brass because you cant find 7 WSM brass and are going to fire them in a standard 7 WSM chamber then use the 300 WSM brass and only size the neck down to where you have a snug fit when closing the bolt, leaving part of the 30 cal neck as a false shoulder.

    I use the 270 brass. I'll neck up to 30 cal. Then size to 7mm leaving the false shoulder.

    I use the 270 brass because my chamber neck is on the small side and I don't want to turn thick necks.

    I'm also using Norma brass. I don't think it would be worth the trouble for factory brass.

    +1 on Norma brass.
    I'm very happy with the quality of 270 WSM Norma Brass.

    Why not just buy some 7WSM brass?

    I can weight sort the Winchester and end up with matched brass a lot cheaper that
    has the right case head stamp on it.

    Norma makes good brass but they are proud of it.(twice as much as the Win or Rem brass)
