Starline is good quality. I just got an order of .32 H&R last week after a couple of years of using the same 200 or so over and over. For my .327 that has a cylinder that's over bored 6 or 7 thousandths the Starline brass probably reloads four times more than Federal. I don't keep track exactly. It's just that Federal fails soon, Starline lasts for more reloads.
I don't know about .38 or .357 from experience. I have more free range .38 brass than I know what to do with and I'm finally starting to throw out the stuff that's splitting that I've been using for wadcutters since the 50's. It all works and lasts a long time with mild loads.
I'm using Starline for my 10mm (both brass and nickel).
It's pretty consistent on length. The primer pockets & flash holes are too.
as far as brass life goes i don't know yet.... but I'm loading my 10mm pretty warm... only time will tell.
I see no problems in using it :thumb:
I use it for 45 Colt loaded with black powder and even have some of their brass 12 ga shot shells that have held up very well over time. I think they have stopped making the shot shells however as I've not seen them for a while.
I use Starline brass in .45,.38 Special,.357 Mag,9mm, and .380. Have never had a problem with it. It is considered a top of the line brass. Some of their standard brass is the same as +P and the only reason they have +P designation is for load identification.
