7mm wsm brass makers?

Some of you have contacts in the reloading industry and what I want to know is if anybody is planning to make 7mm wsm brass other than winchester ? The last bag of winchester brass I got ( 308win ) I had to throw away 5 that didn't fit the shell holder and most had oval primer pockets and were dented all up. Lapua in my dreams or norma . Any quality maker? I am only going to buy 1 bag now and see if someone else comes through with some good brass.

Buy some Norma 300 WSM brass and neck them down. I guess you could also neck up some Norma 270 WSM brass if you prefer.

It's not just sizing them. The shoulder is longer so they have to be fire formed too. I may go that way after I see how bad the bag of winchester brass is. The winchester may be fine and I'm worried adout nothing. Anybody sorted a new bag of 7mm wsm brass lately? How was it?

Re: 7mm wsm brass makers?

The Winchester 7WSM is horrible, I also have 3-5 culls per bag due to malformed necks and just shoddy manufacture, but with some time truing up the flash holes and getting it sorted out, it shoots very well for me. I wished there was another choice, but it isn't so horrible I can't deal with it. It does seem to last a long time if you anneal it and don't run them terribly hard. Good luck with it.

Not that I have seen. It is tough brass, but you spend some time making it straight. I have gotten alot of use out of Win brass, but I am prepared to spend alot of time making it right. It does hold up really well in all three of my WSM's. I haven't ever lost a primer pocket in one of them and since I started annealing them, they work well.

I'll work through them , not really a problem. I was just dreaming of some lapua to save me the work and culls.
