Starline Brass

Post by Bigtrout on 12/28/2016, 1:46 pm

I wanted some new brass for the new range year (April thru October for decent range weather here) so I ordered 1000 Starline 9mm from their website for 13.3 cents apiece and free shipping.  Now my reloads with that brass will jump from 17 cents to 30 cents.  I doubt my shooting will improve but the fun of knowing you've got top quality brass is appealing.  What else do you do between Christmas and New Year's but spend money foolishly?

Ever since I took an inventory of my reloading supplies my spontaneity of purchases of stuff on sale has reduced dramatically Sad.  Although I also bought 2K of 45acp Starline brass on sale at CZ.  You just can't pass up exceptional deals!  Very Happy

Heck last year I bought 2750 rounds of 30cal Carbine ammo from CMP when it went up for sale.  No I don't have a 30cal carbine - yet!

I've got to know- what's the amortization rate on that shiny, nice, got that brand new smell, brass?

There has to be a "drive it off the lot," price  Smile

w4ti, If I get 4 handloads out of them before I croak, I'll be happy.  That will only be about 20 cents a round at that point, lol.

I fully recommend Starline brass for the 9mm. They are consistent and make accurate ammo. The are my go-to for match ammo. 

I load mixed cases for lessons that I give. The brass is cheaper, but crimped primer pockets make it a pain.
