    Find some 300 h@h or 375 h@h brass and neck/ blow it out. It'll be as good as proper headstamp brass and the critter won't know the difference. As long as you aren't crossing through customs improper headstamp doesn't matter.

    I've done over 100 375's to 7mmstw; you just neck 'em down in two stages (either use a 338 or 300 win die with the shoulder at the correct position for the intermediate) and then run them through a fl 7mmstw die. Trim your casings square and shoot either a mild load with a jambed bullet or pistol powder and cream of wheat (no bullet) to blow out the shoulder. I prefer the mild load route as the other will make your riflle filthy if you do any quantity at once.
    If you use 300 h@h casings you can just run them through the stw die but you will likely need to use a load that is 15% down give or take. I don't know how well the shoulders fill out with 300 h@h in one pass as I've not yet used them, but it is a heck of a move on the shoulder.

    Look for 8mm magnum brass. I had to buy it that way. Just run it in your die and you're done. Midway had some when I bought it.
