I bought 1000 rounds of once fired 357 brass(no nickle all brass). Anyway, it appears that most of it has the Headstamp S&B which I would assume is Sellior & Bellot, and another Headstamp I can't figure out. The one I am unfamiliar with has *I* on it. Does anyone know what this brass is, *I*?

Furthermore, does anyone have any experience with either of these two brands of brass? Does it work as well as the big 3(WW, Fed, & RP)? Thanks for any help.

Check in the 336 section just read about someone buying a 1000 rounds of S & B. Reasonable price and I think someone posted they were reloading it with no problems. Not sure about the I.

I don't think it is Starline, unless it is an older headstamp that has been discontinued. Take a look:

OK, this is a bit of a wild guess, but I think it might be Canadian. Imperial maybe? At first, I thought it might be Iraeli Military Indistries, but their headstamp is IIRC IMI.
S&B has been pretty good brass for me. At least I haven't had any problems with it so far.

The *I* headstamp is "Independence" which I think is some sort of subsidiary of CCI and those folks and is out in Lewiston, ID.
