Damn........I sure could have used it. Mine have been loaded and shot so many times, they're splitting 2/3 of the way around about 1/8" up from the belt. LOL

Everybody's mentioned the 8mm Rem Mag, but there's actually quite a few cases you can use for this. The 300 H&H, 375 H&H come to mind immediately, but there are several others as well. Should be able to find one of these without too much trouble.

Yep, I've shot a lot of stw's head stamped 375h@h. It takes an intermediate necking step and a fire-form.

Thanks for the info. I would think the 300 H&H would probably size up as easy or easier than the 8mm Rem Mag. I will definitely keep my eyes open for those. Thanks again...

I was just on Midway's site and they do have some loaded ammo in 7mmstw for sale; I know it's not as cheap as rolling your own, but you will end up with proper headstamp brass when you are through with them.
