Started using Starline brass in various calibers in 2002, on recommendation of CAS club members. Never have had a case failure! I've been loading Starline .38 S&W brass extensively since about 2005, with loads ranging from mild to very authoritative, with bullet weights from 115g to 215g. Except for a few I damaged accidentally, every piece is still serviceable with no signs of case fatigue and all primer pockets still snug, and I must have loaded some at least 20 times. Depending on your gun, this brass will give excellent neck tension from .358-.364" with lead bullets (I haven't tried anything larger). At least with my dies, I can't get brass cases to hold jacketed .357" bullets with acceptable neck tension, so I use only nickel-plated cases for jacketed bullets, solving the problem quite satisfactorily. The .38 S&W and guns that shoot it are generally lead bullet propositions anyway, however, as the cartridge was first used c. 1879. I can't recommend this product highly enough!

I am a first time buyer of starline and very satisfied with the product. The gun shop I go to recommend starline and said that I couldn't go wrong. They were right. Shipping was very fast also. I will use this company again!
