In Bad Need of Brass!

Im wondering if anybody would know if its possible right now to find 7 STW Brass? I just had a beautifull gun built by Defensive Edge and cannot find brass for it anywhere. I did find some nosler 8MM remmington Mag brass but am not familiar with necking down brass. Does it have to be done in stages or can I just stick it in the die and do it in one pass. Any help would be appreciated.

    If you can get 8rem brass get a couple of hundred while you can. The 8rem IS the 7stw's parent case and shouldn't need anything other than light lube to neck down to 7mmstw in a regular FL die. If you were going down from 375 H@H you would have to do a mid step at 30 or 338 but the 8rem should be good in one pass. You also won't really need to fire form as you would for the 375.

    I was picking up 7stw brass just a couple of weeks ago at the local shop; they are out at present though.

    8 mag case with just one pass through your FL 7 STW die and you have your case. No big deal.

    Can you reform & reshape the necks with a neck-sizer die, or will you have to use a FL sizing die for turning 8mm Rem brass into STW?
