Reloading Ammo

Starline Brass is a relatively new supplier of high quality cartridge cases. Jeff Quinn used Starline's .45 Colt brass in a pair of Ruger Vaqueros. He says the appearance and finish of the brass is excellent and has uniformity. The brass from Starline is very consistent in both measurement and weight. Flash hole uniformity seems near perfect.

The Starline .45 Colt brass is heavier, that means it is thicker. Thickness near the head of a cartridge case gives it the strength needed for heavy loads. Primer pockets stayed tight throughout the tests, indicating good strength and reloadability. The Starline cases hold up well and should last a long time.

I like the Colt .45 even though they are more expensive and hotter for cowboy action shooting I feel it is accurate and more authentic. I plan to purchase 1000 unprimed brass shells for future use. The Gun Show was sold out when I attended, so I purchased 500 brassings from Starline. The delivery time was amazing, but they could only promise 500.
