    Has anyone had any experience with this brass? I have not had the best of luck in the past with other Hornady brass so am curious as to how I'm going to fair with my 30/375 S.I. Thanks........Rich

    Short of the weird bolt face why not build it on the 6.5x68 or 8x68 and use RWS brass? It's a little more (1.70 each) but it's also higher quality. Brass forming would be easy with a neck down and fireform. The .257 Banshee was made on this case and got every bit of the capacity of a STW if not more.

    Thanks, mine is 95 grs. full to the top so I would guess yours is probably the same. Have you tried Retumbo?.......Rich
