Unbelievable quality, Excellent QC in its's self cannot turn out such high-quality brass without very talented and dedicated employees helping. This is something that is hard to come by.

I bought this to shoot in the Single Stack Nationals. I got, roll sized, die sized it, trimmed and chamfered the case mouths inside and out, and finished by chamfered the flash holes. Wet polished and loaded. I was shooting Black Bullet"s 200 Gr SWC. I weighed 2000 bullets and settled on the bullets between 201-202 grains. This to give a PF cushion. Most would say "WHY WOULD YOU DO ALL OF THIS". Well, my last chrono session gave me a standard deviation of 3! and at 25 yards my Sig Max Michel was shooting under 1" at 25 from a sand bag. I got to match and at the chrono stage these rounds duplicated my last result EXACTLY! This was wild because I did my work in GA, and the place in Illinois is a good bit different in temperature and elevation. Was this all due to the brass, I'd say no, but the consistency of the brass was definitely a contributing factor. I do this for all brass for major matches, but no other brand of brass has ever performed as well Starline did. If you truly want match ammo, buy the best brass and do the work.

You can't beat Starline brass. That's all there is to say. Hands down the best reloading brass available on the market today.

I use Starline for my 9MM, 44 Special, 44 Mag and now 45 ACP. I never had a problem with any of the brass from Starline. Excellent quality and delivery when ordering online.

I just purchased another 500 rd. box of .45 acp from Starline. I've been reloading my first batch for three years now and they are still going strong. I processed some yesterday with 5 reloads and the primer pockets are still good and snug. When they come out of the corn media tumbler process they look brand new! I have yet to experience a single case failure in three years time. I bought the additional 500 for backup and this coming fall / winter reloading sessions. I've been very pleased with the quality of Starline brass and I do recommend Starline to others at my club.

outstanding brass! I've loaded thousands of rounds in 40SW, 45ACP and. 45 Colt. I've also used many others in the beginning but won't use anything but Starline now. You cannot make a better selection.

I bought 500 of these brass cases last year and have finally got down to my last hundred for reloading. I'm extremely pleased with the quality of this product. Theses cases load easily and I have reloaded some of these cases 6 plus time. Most of all buying direct from Starline Brass is a great value for me. Reloading is very important to me. I'm very picky about my brass I use for reloading.

I've been reloading rifle cartridges for years and have recently (18 months) jumped into loading for a new Wilson Tactical Elite. Starting with other brass I was told about Starline. I was surprised to see how the tolerances are kept so tight. Comparing Starline cases to other big name reload manufacturing companies I've found the case length tolerances are plus/minus close to zero where the others were out to .003 on a regular basis. I've given all my other brass away to my friends I shoot against, lol and use only Starline brass now. Bob

Premium quality brass at a less-than-premium price! This is the most uniform brass I have seen for .45 Auto. It is MUCH more consistent than the "big name' brands, and is excellent in fit and finish. In 1000 cases, I only saw .002" variance in length. Flash holes are great as well, uniform and centered. All this costs less than once-fired brass from other sources! I use Starline for all of my straight-walled brass needs. I just wish they would get into bottle-necked rifle calibers ;)

I have been loading for 45 years. I use Starline Brass in all my pistol calibers. In my opinion there is no other brass that loads as well and lasts as long as Starline. This is a great product.

Perfect brass! I just finished loading my 300th round with this brass caliber. Absolutely no issues. Shot perfectly in my 1911! I highly recommend this company, Quality is here folks! Similar experience with the 45 Colt brass which I have loaded 1500+ rounds... Rock on Starline!

I started using Starline brass a few years ago. I will not buy any other pistol brass now except for Starline. They are beautifully finished, correctly trimmed to length and usually do not require sizing before loading. They last through many reloadings. I couldn't ask for more. I'm a customer for life.

Very consistent in all dimensions. I've got some that have been fired 10+ times and still going strong. I'll lose them before I wear them out. This is my favorite brass, and the cheapest. You won't regret this brass!

I have now moved entirely to *--* (Starline) brass. It is the best quality brass both for initial loading and reloading. Great American made product for a reasonable price. And customer service at *--* is impeccable!

This brass seems to have become the standard in USPSA competition shooting in my area, based on my observation at matches and discussions with other shooters. There are a number of reasons for this success: 1. Starline brass is economically priced and it is made in the USA. 2. Starline brass is very consistent, so nothing works better in my Dillion XL650 progressive press than Starline. When I have a big batch to reload, I know that with nothing but Starline .45ACP in the brass hopper, it's going to be a good day. 3. Quality manufacturing and shipping: Starline apparently is able to handle their brass a little more carefully than the competition, because when it comes out of the box it seldom shows any dents or other marks, even though it is packed in bulk. 4. Durability: Although .45ACP is not a caliber that is known to be hard on brass, I see no difference in durability between Starline and other top-name competitors. I expect Starline .45ACP brass to last a long, long time, through many reloading cycles. 5. Customer Service: Starline has good people on the phones, so on the few occasions that I have needed to talk with someone I have reached a knowledgeable person who knew how to answer my question and was empowered to take action if it was necessary.

I have been reloading metallic cartridges for approx. 32 yrs. I have used many types and calibers of brass. Starline is by far my favorite to reload. No problems with any of the many Pistol, Revolver and Rifle cartridges that I have had the pleasure of working with. I would recommend their products in any caliber to anyone.
