I am currently loading and shooting .38 Special and appreciating the quality of Starline Brass. Starline produces the finest brass cartridge cases you can buy.

I have been using Starline 38 special brass for many many years with zero failures and my press loves them too! Absolutely no reason to use anything else! I have lost count as to how many times I have reloaded each case. They seem to last forever.

When using moonclips in 38/357, Starline brass is the answer mated with .025 thick clips. My 8 shot revolver loves this mix and they fall in and out unbelievably fast.

The most consistent brass I have found. Weighed all brands of 38 brass and only the Starline stays within 0.5 gr.

Outstanding Product, best I have ever used. Great for reloading cowboy action load. Friendliest and helpful people when you call to place orders and ask questions. I will buy more when available to purchase

I have used Starline brass for several years now and have only had two cartridges that were defective. Out of 10,000+ rounds that's not bad. The .38 Spec is the most enjoyable rounds to reload and to shoot. Never a bad one in the thousands I've loaded and fired. Thanks Starline for a superior product! Sincerely, D. R. Lovell

Been using mixed case range brass. Needed to have extra for reloading. Researched Starline and purchased. Uniform and great for reloads. Will be buying more Startline!

Starline is a gold mine but well kept secret. Learned about it on line and have been very happy ever since. In you first order, you will see how they take pride in their product as their quality is superior to virtually every other manufacturer I have used for reloading over 30 years. The .38 cycles perfectly in revolvers I use as well as 3 Henry Big Boy rifles we have. While those guns cycle like a knife through butter as they are, the Starline Brass adds to the positive experience. RECOMMENDED

By far the best brass I have reloaded. The company is great to deal with. Look forward to many more orders.

Starline brass is the best overall, and I've reloaded enough different brands to give a fair rating. It is consistant in SAMMI specs, quality of material and reloadability is great! Primer pockets are sized right for multiple reloads without enlarging, rim diameter is a perfect 'avg for all shellholders. Their annealing process is good, just the right temp, I get 10-15 reloads easy before a possible split case! Nickel is the exception. This review also applies to their .357's, same case just longer all with good pricing.

Excellent brass. I am updating my rounds and looked to Starline as my supplier of choice. I have not been disappointed. The casings arrived in perfect condition, round mouths, no blemishes, ready to start reloading. The 38 Special brass seems to need no prep other than to expand them to accept the seating of the bullet. I am pleasantly pleased in this day of cutting costs and quality, Starline appears to have spared no expense that would cause the quality to suffer. I highly recommend them for all your pistol brass. I only wish they would branch out into bottle neck cases.

Great brass made really good reloads when you can get it but it has been out of stock with no backorder every time I have checked in the last two years. HELP I need brass.

Starline brass is excellent for reloading. Cleans and loads very easy as I have reloaded this brass as well as others numerous times without problems. Great value for the money and the specs are the same if not better than the "named" brand unless you like spending more of your money for the name. I'd rather shoot more for less!
