Yessiree! Starline Brass, the Baskin-Robbins of the brass world, and I have been getting along quite splendidly lately. It seems they have mind-reading capabilities for us handloaders. Just when we start scratchin’ our noggins wishin’ for a new flavor to appear while rubbin’ our favorite famished guns like a magic lantern, out it comes. How do they do that?
Now we have a source of buying bulk brass in another favorite caliber. I know who won’t be real happy about this latest release: the whistle pigs, rock-chucks, badgers, ground squirrels and other vermin, along with the likes of Wyle E. Coyote! They’ll all be hating life after this latest release.
Varminters, target shooters and plinkers alike will be grinning from ear-muff to ear-muff with this latest addition to the Starline lineup. So start studying what you want to stuff your new Starline brass with as you order lots of 500 or 1,000 pieces of this yellow gold.
I measured and weighed 10 pieces of my pretty little smokeless powder pots (that’s brass cartridge cases for the unimaginative) and can’t say I was surprised with the results. My lightest piece weighed 98.4 grains and the heaviest weighed 99.4 grains. The average weight for all 10 pieces came in at 99.02 grains. All weights were weighed with a Hornady GS-1500 Electronic scale.
Lengthwise, my shortest piece was 1.745″ and longest 1.750″ with an average of 1.748″ average — pretty darn consistent, if you ask me. All measurements were taken with my tried and true dial calipers from Midway.
