Is Winchester still making 7mm STW brass? as it seems hard to locate.
From what I've heard both Winchester and Remington brass in 7mmSTW will be seasonal in nature. Supposedly Winchester is gonna make some this spring. It looks like it will be like 264WM brass, best to buy it when you see some, and not wait until you need it. I'm sure you know that you could always use 8mmRM brass, if you can locate some of that. Good luck!
I have been looking every where . an the only plase that has them is cabelas. an I have checked every where .If you find some pleses post it . Redbone
A-Square has STW brass (I dont know the price now)
They make there own brass and there is no prep required
I had good luck with it when I was loading 7 STW. they were
the only ones making and loading it at the time. I tried 8mm rem
and it would not last with my loads (very hot)almost 3800 fps with a 140 gr bullet.
With normal loads the 8mm rem brass will work fine but
depending on how tight your chamber is you may have
to turn them to get .015to.016 neck thickness.
I hope this helps

Still looking for the flatest long range combo.
I,m also looking at forward ignition to reduce

price you pay for speed).

I looked in my Black Hills Shooters Supply catalog (FFL dealers only) and only see the Remington version. They list Winchester as "rifle brass" and "seasonal brass" and it's not listed in either.
Black Hills Shooter\'s Supply had it in Stock......
You need to call them!
sinclair international has both REM and WIn in STW /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
