Starline VS Winchester

Any one use Starline brass? It's cheaper than Winchester. Is it just as good?
I'm thinking of buying a large quantity but would like to hear some feedback.

"Is it just as good?"

IMO, yes, perhaps even a little better. Definitely better than Remington. They put out high grade brass.

In my humble opinion starline has a much better product than winchester in terms of component brass.

Been using it for a while now in several calibers with no problems. It's good stuff. I'm sure you won't be disappointed with it!

Starline would be the first place I'd look if actually buying new brass (doesn't happen very often).

Winchester and Starline both manufacture very good brass. I've also had good luck with Remington in most calibers.

Starline is good stuff.

I have used Starline for years and still buy it. It is very good brass. You can also buy it direct from Starline and get it cheaper than most shops sell it.

Winchester and starline are the only two kinds of brass that I bother with.
I usually have more of one than the other in a certain caliber, and that determines my usage.

I decided to go with Starline about 20,000 rounds ago. I bought 2000 cases. Other than those I've mashed by being clumsy, have tossed very few. Still not getting the rough case mouth despite the fact that I use a roll crimp.

Sounds like Starline is the way to go.
Thanks for all the replies.

i ordered a bunch of 45acp (fired) and got a fair bit of starline. smooth and uniform, no complaints about it at all.

45-70, 44mag, 454Casull and 45 acp I prefer Starline to Winchester

I have found that I get more shots per case with starline, especially if the loads are near or at the top limits

You know...I have been shooting both Starline and Winchester for a long time now and I really can't tell the difference in preformance or quality...Post Toasties or Kellogs Corn Flakes. Which ever you like...:D

Now me??? I prefer Winchester because it is free and plentiful...
