    Starline, no contest.
    Starline makes the best handgun brass you can get.

    Why?
    Cause that's just the way it is!

    I get 5-6 reloads from Starline on mag los before the brass starts contributing to inconsistent EDs over the chrony, WW only 3.

    But if I start with new from both the WW is lower than Starline on the 1st firing .

    The next lot may be the opposite , but no matter how hard the industry strives for consistency there will be differences in a given alloy .

    I also like Starline brass best. The primer holes seem to be centered and the same size on all cases and they last a very long time.

    Another Starline FanBoy here. Just bought 1000 nickle plated .44 mag cases from Graf (.21 cents per). They should last me awhile I'm guessing at 5 reloads each thats about 1 to 2 years with this caliber.

    I've got a couple thousand of each in 38 spl & 45 colt.

    I don't notice any difference in accuracy or speed (when chrono'd).

    And some of each have 15 firings too.
