Starline is now producing 7.62x39 Brass. Just thought I would share the information for those that reload or want to reload it.
Well do you know that I have a Birthday coming up soon, and that I can use some more 10 MM Brass?I bought some in .500 S&W Mag, .327 Fed Mag and will most likely buy some in 10mm next. I know the Starline .500 S&W Mag is definitely holding up better then the Winchester .500 S&W Mag brass I have. I have lost several S&W cases to split necks and have not lost a single Starline yet.
You kidding? By the time we buy all the candles for your cake, we'll all be broke!Well do you know that I have a Birthday coming up soon, and that I can use some more 10 MM Brass?
Just thought I would mention that, Mingaa is already getting me a Gift Certificate from Starline I hear!----
I have only ever loaded hunting ammo for that reason and then I discovered the Wolf 154 soft point is death to hogs.My experience has been (not specifically with Starline, mind you) that it is more expensive to reload 7.62x39 than to just buy Wolf (which is actually pretty darned accurate in my SKS's and just pretty accurate in my AK). The absolute best price per round I could squeeze out of this round was about $0.20/round NOT counting the brass, using an experimental Bluedot load (it worked!) and Xtreme plated bullets 7.62 125gr flat nosed projectiles - I had to dremel a little bit on my AK to create a feed ramp of sorts to get them to chamber properly and they'd hit about 1800fps before cycling the gun but were actually pretty accurate. However, the price is pretty much right at what I can purchase Wolf or some other steel cased ammo for which functions flawlessly and as designed - plus, no chasing brass.
well they may not do that!I've bought Starline in 45-70 and 454 Casull. So far it has been great. I collected a fair amount of fired Starline off the range in 357, 45 Colt, 32 Colt Long and 38 S&W. I can't figure out why a person would go to the trouble to buy premium brass, load it and leave it on the range. If any of it has been loaded more than twice I can't tell it.
don't forget to wear the aluminized crash rescue/ suits as well before I light all the candles up!!You kidding? By the time we buy all the candles for your cake, we'll all be broke!
Yeah, I lost a couple of Starline 10mm brass not long ago - yup, kicked around in the gravel for about 20 minutes before I just gave up and went home!!I bought some in .500 S&W Mag, .327 Fed Mag and will most likely buy some in 10mm next. I know the Starline .500 S&W Mag is definitely holding up better then the Winchester .500 S&W Mag brass I have. I have lost several S&W cases to split necks and have not lost a single Starline yet.
True, but if you put a large trashcan about 10 feet behind you, it should drop right in, right?Brass in general is expensive as all get out now days. I was looking at .45ACP brass at Academy, think it was Winchester. 100 pieces, they wanted something around 40 bucks! Heck, I can buy 100 rounds of .45ACP loaded ammo in reloadable brass for about that or maybe a little less. Then I can enjoy practicing while I collect the ammo.
The nifty thing about the SKS, remove the gas piston and you have a straight pull bolt gun, no need to chase the brass.
