I did pick up some brass a few weeks ago at a shop this one near me. They had 5 pieces of Winchester and about 47 pieces of Remington. I was suprised that they had some, so I bought all of it.
You won't believe this, a hunting friend called Natchez and he ordered us some brass and had it shipped to Fla. To his daughters house. We thought we had it figured out, but they called back and cancelled the order and said they couldn't bill to AL. either.
I think George Soros and the Obama administration must have some say in this one. That beats all I have ever seen and terrible for business, but I guess they don't need our business in AL.. They don't have to worry because they will not get a good reference from us here.
If I were a betting man, I bet it has to do with- you guessed it- TAXES!

I guess I was fortunate to find it and I bought it. The store owner said that they had 7 boxes at one time and I got the last 2, would have bought all 7 boxes if I could.
I am going to check with Remington every month and hopefully they will make some soon, but they told my brother that they were out of the 7STW brass business. I hope that's wrong, but maybe they will have a run of 8mmRM brass soon and I will be buying a couple a 100 if I can get them.

Hey Fred, those 150 PP winchesters usually shoot pretty good. I realize you bought them for the brass, ( been there , done that) , but some of those that I bought years ago shot pretty well. I would use them as sighters when I was testing or sighting in . Then,I had once fired brass, but I noticed that they were pretty accurate, and fast too! Just wanted to throw that out to ya'. Glad that you found some brass though! Take care.

I will definely shoot them to see what happens, I have killed a bunch of stuff in the past with Winchester factory loads, those PP work good in a regular rifle like a 30-06. The 7stw usually isn't picky with what it will eat, but a regular bullet seems to tare up quick with the high velocity it can produce.
Thanks for the heads up.

Well I got my 7mm STW brass from Natchez today. I guess I'm set for a long time since I got 500 cases!
