Our .45-70 brass has been tested at elevated pressures suitable for Magnum Heavy Hunting Loads in adequate gun systems. When loading with black powder, annealing of mouth may be necessary to allow case to properly seal chamber due to lower pressures generated by these loads. Our case is produced very strong to withstand high pressure loads associated with smokeless hunting loads and since the only way to make brass harder is to work the material our only option is to leave them stiffer so the customers can anneal for specific application. See annealing procedure in Commonly Asked Questions, section #4.

Status: NOT AVAILABLE/NO BACKORDERS due to extreme demand. Check site later for availability.

I reload for both my 1873 Trapdoor rifle and my 1874 Shiloh Sharps carbine and have had excellent results with Starline's brass. Reloading for trapdoors can be very difficult as they are extremely sensitive to different types of smokeless powders and bullet types. After many repeated tries with three different powders and three different bullet weights/styles I finally succeeded on a satisfactory, accurate load. With only 40 Starline cases to begin with, they held up admirably with very little case stretching. To help with 45/70 case longevity I used a Lyman neck sizing die. I really like the quality of Starline, and yes , I noticed they're heavier walled than Remington's or Winchester's.
