As 32-20 brass, I am sure this is awesome. I bought it due to the current lack of .218 bee brass. My forming process was probably not ideal, but I had a higher than expected spoilage rate and the brass ends up about .050 short. Pleae offer .218 and/or 25-20 brass.

Formed perfectly into .218 Mashburn Bee after annealing with RCBS form & trim dies. This is definitely the way to go from now on. Necks might be a little short but should stretch with reloading...

Awesome brass for the price. I use it in my 218 bee contender carbine , 32/20 is the parent case. And also my 110 year old marlin 32-20 wcf. Thank you for making great quality product at a affordable price. Please start making this brass for the 218 bee. It would be a great seller for your company.

I have found forming 218 Bee brass from Starline's 32-20 brass to be a very easy procedure and I do not lose any brass as one commentor stated he loses 40% of the brass. I may have one or two cases out of 100 cases not form correctly. Here's a link where I have outlined the procedure I use when forming Starline's 32-20 brass into 218 Bee brass: http://www.marlinowners.com/forum/32-40-38-55-375-other-great-non-standard-calibers/174112-forming-218-bee-brass-starline-32-20-brass-easy-way.html Keep up the great job Starline! Your products allow me to be able to keep shooting rifles that the ammo manufacturers have left behind.

Consistently great quality brass. I never yet had a case fail unless due to "OPERATOR ERROR" I've just started a new single shot rifle in this caliber. Purchased a box of 1000 to "set aside" for that rifle, and perhaps another 1000 for the grandkids- I hate to be a nit-picker, but a run of factory 25wcf would be welcomed by many shooter-- Keep up the great work

Excellent Brass a little short but works fine but you really need to make 218 Bee brass also .Winchester is the only supplier and everyone is out of stock most of the year.. The price is almost double the 30-30 price. Pleeeese!

Pity you don't do .218 bee. There is a great demand but a shortage. Why don't you make the brass we want?

all your brass is very good, but if you made 218 bee brass it would be even better for the 218 bee, when forming the 32 20 into 218 bee you will lose close to 40 percent of the brass, but, that is better then not haveing any 218 at all, in my opinion, more people want the 218 then the 32 20, so , why not make the 218 instead of haveing people buy the 32 20 and form it into 218, makes no sence to me, but then again i do not work there

Best brass available, recommend using the Lee Factory Crimp Die for final loading stage. Same recommendation for Starline 38-40 and 45/70 brass.
