I have two antique rifles in 50-70 GOV'T. The brass that I've gotten from starline is second to none. The quality is outstanding, and even when loaded to full bore black powder loads, I have yet to have a split case or any significant stretching in five reloads from both a Springfield 1868 Trapdoor and a Remington NY State Militia Rifle. I could not be happier with this product. Thank you Starline. I hope you make more real soon.

Without your excellent .50-70 brass my trapdoor Springfield would be forever silent.
