    Went by a mom and pop sporting goods store today and saw several bags of unfired brass. Is STW brass becoming more available?

    It certainly was hard to find for quite a while. For the longest time new old stock of Remington or Winchester were the only option. Quality Cartridge made a few small runs of it. Nosler has been on the scene for a while now. Probably around 5 years or so. Recently Bertram and Hornady are also selling it. So thankfully it is more readily available when guys need it

    I've been using Nosler since my stock of Remington (8mm) gave out, and the Nosler (8mm RM) has performed well for me thru 5 firings. I found some Bertram and will soon do some load work up for it in my 1:9 and 1:8 twists with 180s & 195s. It's good to see some options. The Bertram will be the first properly headstamped brass I've ever used in three 7STWs.
