Just curious if any of you out there use or have used Starline brass. What did you think of it? How does it compare to other brands? I was considering using it in my Redhawk in 45 Colt and wondered how it handled hotter loads.

I have not used it myself, but from all of the positive reviews I would not hesitate to buy it. See Cabela's, and Midway's reviews on this brass.

I agree with Lester, I haven't used it either but from what I've heard it must be excellent brass. Smile

Hey Rob, I use Starline cases exclusively for my .357 and I don't run any wimp load either. All of my loads tend to stay at the top of the load charts. I would highly recommend them.

I'm using Starline for some warm .45 Colt loads and like it.

WW, Rem, Starline -- for straightwall cases, it would make no difference in terms of brass life, accuracy etc. I've used all three brands with total satisfaction.

On my Dillon 550, I prefer Remington because it sizes easier and has given outstanding service. I also use Remington for hot loads in the 45 Colt* and 44 Magnum and see little difference between that brand and the others mentioned. Just so happens I get Remington at the gunshop where I work for a significant discount.

*Linebaugh maximums.

I would like Handloader to correct me if I'm wrong on this one, but last year while developing a reload for my Ruger Blackhawk .41mag., the reloads using Starline brass seemed a tad stronger than with the general types of brass, using the same powder charge.
I knocked down the charge a little on the Starline, and all was well.

Eric, I know that I can tell the difference when sizing Starline brass vs. Rem or Win. Sometimes I'll clean a bunch of one type of case and then sort them as I resize them. Starline seems stouter. I haven't done any measurements of case thickness or volume though.

That is kind of what I have noticed also Mike.
I just wanted someone smarter that me to confirm it. Very Happy

Eric, if you want someone smarter than you to confirm it we'll have to wait to see who else comments on it... Wink

Just weigh the starline brass compared to Winchester or Remmington brass. If it weighs more the you should load it a bit lighter. (about 8 grains of brass = 1 grain of powder in the same volume)
