    I went to the LGS after work to get some .44 mag brass to replace the Remington I was having trouble with. The guy said, "Try this. I think you'll like it and it's quite a bit cheaper."

    So I got 150 cases of some brass called "Starline". Not familiar with it, but I'm sure the fine people here can tell me if it's worthwhile to use.

    Thanks, in advance!

    Love it. I I've been loading .357 mag with it for a pretty long while and still haven't expired any of it yet, and I run H110 loads through it.

    Starline Brass

    Excellent brass.
    Use it for cast loads in 45-70, and 32-20.

    I bought a bunch of .44 mag. stuff from a guy once, and this brand of brass raised MY eyebrows, never heard of it before. Seems like fine stuff though.

    Like it. It's my first choice in new brass and what I look for in the "factory loads" of companies that don't make their own or license their headstamp. I believe Black Hills and Buffalo Bore, for example, use Starline for many of their loads.

    Best you can buy. I really wish they would make rifle brass. Also wish I would have ordered more brass in early December like I had planned to. You can't purchase much from them right now.

    I've been using Starline brass for years in 44 mag & 45 LC,and for a couple years in my 458 SOCOM.
    They make some great brass!

    Good brass. The only .44mag brass that I find better is IMI. Been shooting Starline for 15 years.

    the 500 pieces of starline brass I have in 44mag are the best brass in my inventory.

    I won't trade them, or sell them.

    They are so uniform, you can use them for weight testing loaded cartridges to determine if they have the proper charge.

    Absolutely the best.

    I use Starline for all my new handgun brass. It's as good as it comes and better than anything else I've found. If they offered rifle brass I would buy it at once.

    I will be surprised if anyone here has a bad report on Starline. During the last shortage I placed a couple of orders of brass that wasn't in stock, they arrived before the expected date on their website.

    Ask your dealer why he stocks the other stuff. Starline is that good.

    I prefer starline brass to Hornady for my .44mag and 45/70

    They do make some rifle brass: 45-70 Gov't, for example.

    Not to sound like a broken record but Starline brass is good stuff.

    I never think twice about buying it if it an option. Unfortunately, even in good time, it is frequently sold out because it is popular.
