    Has anyone used Starline brass? What are you thoughts?
    Not going to load anything hot just some lead ammo in 45 colt.
    thanks for the input.

    I have used Starline for years in 357, 44 Special and 45 Colt. Good stuff in my experience.

    IMO: Starline brass is excellent brass, better than typical Federal, Winchester, or Remington.

    Hi,

    You can avoid the middleman and order it directly from them shipping included too:

    Also consider some 45 Schofield brass for your 45 Colt handgun. Starline makes this also in periodic runs.

    If you prefer Starline Nickel, as I do, you'll need to go to Midway USA. ( 10mm )

    Every time I bought a gun in a new to me caliber, I ordered 1k rounds of Starline brass. No regrets; it's good stuff.

    Yeah, same here--I ended up ordering some 10mm from Midway. I can't believe how much some of the other companies want for their brass.

    They're expected to have some of the 10mm by 10/31, according to the site.

    This was one (among several) reasons I dumped 10mm. Buying brass put quite a dent in your "per round" cost. However, if you need another vote, you won't go wrong w/ Starline.

    10mm is an awesome cartridge, I wish it was more popular than it is, but unfortunately it's not.

    Have to shoot a S&W 610, so we don't have to try to catch the brass while it's still in the air. lol

    Excellent brass with soem peculiarities.
    In 45 ACP new Tsraline brass mrequires a modification of the Dillon expander die.
    In 38 Special & 357 Magnum the grrove is cut rather wide which results in very loose cartridges when using Ranch Products moonclips.
