Re: Headspacing for 7mm stw?
I just pulled out my stw cases. I have a rem custom shop gun built in the mid 90's.
The fired cases measure .5145 to .5150. I have some unfired rem cases bought in
2001 that measure .5050. So I would say some one, most likely the brass manufacturers cheated much like they did on the 6.5x55 rim and started making the
brass smaller on the 300 H&H measurements and the reamer makers followed suit.
I am sure my original win cases were not .5050 like the rem. The other thread about
2 different reamers for the stw peeked my curiosity. The ptg mentioned obviously is not
what Remington used on my gun as the cases would never fit.
