Well, I have a twin!!! I have been grabbing up any brass that I can, including factory ammo that I ran into recently. ( I stole it and didn't even feel guilty). I read that Natchez has 8 mm brass. I have heard of none other that what I have. Occasionally it shows up on Gunbroker.com. I have enough for now, and am looking out for some for a buddy of mine on this website. Sorry I don't have good news, but it is always nice to talk to someone in the brotherhood of the 7 STW. Good luck my friend.
AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL. 7 STW.

When I have resized 8 mag brass, I simply adjust the 7 stw all the way to the shell holder. Generously lube the INSIDE of the neck, and body. Run the case up into the die with a firm lever, and down the same way. Typically, the brass comes out prefect. Occasionally, you will split a neck. Then just trim it to 2.840 or 2.835. I use imperial resizing wax and it works great for case forming. I have about 200 pieces of either virgin brass, or premium ammo. I look for it at gun shows, and sometimes get lucky. what do you have for a rifle?

Re: HELP!! Looking for 7mm STW Brass

Seeing that you still have the opportunity, maybe you should consider a different chambering. 7mmRUM, 7 Rem mag, 7WSM ...........

Of course that would mean that you'd have to change your posting name too.
