I would love to get my hands on some Nosler brass for the 7WSM! Even then, I wouldn't need to do all of the prepping and such. For now, I guess I can suffer with the old WW hulls. Seems like someone should come out with something, the 7WSM seems like it is a good LR round and used in a fair amount of competition.

    I've got some Federal 7 WSM brass at the bench but haven't taken a good look at it yet. Like everyone else, I have been working with the Winchester brass which is easy to get. It's cheap enough that I really don't mind the culls which I use for "barrel fouling" rounds after a good bore cleaning.

    Got a 7WSM barrel on order so this thread interest me.
    When the WSMs first came out I used 270wsm brass from Norma and Winchester for a 6.5WSM that never did work for me.
    The Norma brass was consistant, uniform and expensive.
    The Winchester brass was tuff, cheap and easier to come by.
    Have always had a problem keeping the primer pockets tight on Federal brass....Ya I know dont load them hot but that is not always the case.
    If Nosler brass is just weight sorted Federal, why bother?

    This is what I do. It's a very simple fireform.

    Here's a picture of the Norma 300wsm necked down with a false shoulder.

    If I didn't have a 270 and 300WSM, I would go the Norma route, but since I already have the other two around, I don't wanna start mixing up brass.

    Last bag of Winchester WSM brass I got had 2 cases that wouldn't fit the shell holder, I called Winchester and bitched about it and they sent a call tag for the brass, I sent it back and they sent me a $20.00 coupon for Winchester stuff. Not a bad deal I suppose but it really should at least fit the shell holder.

    This was the first problem I have ever had with Winchester.
