Starline brass. Any good?


December 25, 2005, 02:00 AM
I've just started reloading and I have the opportunity to buy 1000 pcs of 10mm Starline brass for just under $50. Is this a good deal? Is Starline good stuff?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

I don't shoot 10MM, but Starline brass is a pretty good product in the calibers I load in.

Eddie - I have always heard good of Starline and use that exclusively almost for my 45-70 loads.

I have found it truly excellent.

Good brass. It is my first choice for .44 Mag, .45 Colt, and .357 Mag. I am sure their 10mm brass is just as good.

Jump on it.
Starline is as good/better than anything else.

Starline is some good stuff

I like starline brass. It seems to be made just as well as everyone elses. And in some cartridges like 9mm largo it's the only choice. You can't beat their low prices either.

Get it quick, before someone else does.

Starline brass is the lousiest brass on the market....That said...Can I have the address of this "cheap" Starline brass???:D

I get my Starline .45 Colt cases from Midway...approximately $12/hundred, plus shipping...never any problems from Starline brass, though my older Rem/Peters cases are beginning to split. The older cases seem thinner than most others, and I've also had inward-bulging cannelures on old cases.

I have loaded a few houndred 45 acp with no issues. Never resized or needed to trim any of the new brass.
P95 Have you experienced slightly loose cases after belling without resizing? So far the 50 down so far all have crimped firmly with almost a compressed load behind.

tx - actually even on the new brass I run it thru the sizer prior to priming - just habit I guess. So belling case mouth just a regular next stage.

I think I do this to ensure good case neck hold anyways, just in case they might be a tad loose. That has occurred in past with new brass occasionally - probably why I size every time even new.

I load one lot of 45-70's pretty hot, all but compressed charge of 3031 - for Ruger 31 and finish them off in FCD. This seems to give a good final hold.

My lower load (tho still plenty warm!) for the BFR does now and again even with a pretty firm crimp, show a small bullet shift by round #5. Another reason I'll resize new cases - to max the case hold as well as crimp.

I digress a bit onto loading - but certainly reiterate - no compaints at all with the Starline brass.

Starline is excellent brass and at that price jump on it quick or it will be gone.
