    Starline Brass

    I do not have any as of yet but I know many people prefer them for their quality and longevity. They are on my load charts to order when my current massive supply of brass wears out. I do not know of any cons to Starline except perhaps cost. I'm sure other members will chime in.

    I should be so lucky!

    It is the best brass you can get, and always has been.

    Star Line Brass

    Thats all I use in new brass. Very good brass and reasonably priced. A lot of the big name shooters use them.

    Starline brass is good stuff.When looking to buy new cases, it is always one of the options I look at.

    When I buy cases, I buy 500 or 1000 at a time. Unfortunately, inventory shortages prevent me from buying the same brand every time.

    Been using Starline brass in my 10 MM, 44 MAG and 45 Colt for years and am completely satisfied with quality and longevity. Good stuff!

    Top shelf, I've loss count of how many times I've reloaded some starline 45acp cases, all I know is the head stamp is awfully hard to read anymore.

    Bought some Starline in .458 SOCOM as it was the only stuff you could buy new to load without spending $3 a piece for loaded rounds. It is high quality stuff, especially their nickle plated.

    I use Starline for every cartridge I shoot, except the ones they don't make (.350 Rem Mag, 8mm Rem Mag, .375 RUM, a few others). I find it to be very high quality but still reasonably priced.

    Obviously, if I'm buying once fired or accepting free stuff, I'm not very discriminating. But for new, it's Starline whenever possible.

    Really good long lasting brass though a tad thicker than some out there. I'm shooting it in 45 Colt and soon to be in 9mm and 45 ACP also. They used to make brass shot shells also but haven't been able to find any for a while now so using Magtech.

    Bought new Starline in .357Mag, .44Ma, and .44SPL. Great stuff.

    You almost never find any on the ground or in range buckets. What does that tell you?

    I just received a case(1k) of 45 acp brass direct from them a couple weeks back, it is really nice brass.

    I don't think it gets any better for pistol brass.

    With the price people are trying to get out of once fired 357 and 44 mag brass I buy new starline brass instead. I've had good luck with it. I like it

    I wish they would produce 50 BMG brass, Starline makes brass for some of the major manufacturers of ammo. Chances are you've used it but didn't know that they made it.

    Just got a batch of .45 Colt from them, but haven't loaded it yet. Looks superb.

    Fantastic stuff !

    Very consistent weight from case to case, and factory finished very well.

    Love the *-* head stamp.

    Starline....#1 on my list for any cartridge I can get it in.

    Norma makes good rifle brass, too.
