I have been all over physical and on the internet and have not been able to find any 7mm-08 brass new or once fired. Any help would appreciated!
Thanks

Get some .308 Win. or 7.62 NATO brass then size its neck down with a full length sizing die.

Our LGS store just had about 10-15 packs of it, all gone now though.

I see it on armslist and gunbroker from time to time.

buy 7-08 ammo, fire it, and now you have once-fired brass

Another suggestion for the .308 size down, thats where the '08 comes from anyway. The process is as easy as sizing the regular case, but might require a simple trim job to square the necks up afterwords IF your so inclined.

I have done the same thing for 25-06, .270, and 280 cases from 30-06 cases.

Found some 7mm-08 on fsibrass.com while searching for .308 win Winchester headstamped brass.

Edit: just found some at diamondkbrass.com as well looking for .308 brass.
