i agree with doc why NOT 500! i went to the range sunday and in 1/2 an hour put 40 reloads downrange, would have been more but i didn't have anymore to shoot! i have put 100 rounds through my rifle in a couple hours of plinking before. and... you never know when you might need a large block of ammo.... i live on the edge of detroit!:hmmmm::viking:lol

Hey Doc, I'd like to get 1,000 rounds of Starline bras for my shoulder cannon, and I wouldn't have to pay shipping. I live about five miles from the Starline plant here in Sedalia, Mo. Just can't afford the cost right this minute, doctor bills, meds, air conditioner bills, you know, the usual stuff us ''more experienced folks'' have to put up with. Y'all take care, John.

If you have to ask why anyone would need 500 cases you have never been through a brass drought, i have for many different calibers and you learn real quick that when some become available you better be prepared to buy ASAP or you will be SOL. eh

"what in the world would you need 500 cases for??"
.................................................................................for a long, long time - it's starline!

actually, i just got 250 starline cases in 475 linebaugh - i can't believe the quality! - i took out my calipers and measured 25 for oal - each one was dead on 1.395" and then i pulled another 25 to check for primer pocket depth and uniformity - i used a forster large rifle uniformer and only barely touched the pockets - on top of exact depth, they were all exact diameter, with primers all seating with the same pressure.

i've bought starline before in 44mag, 45colt and 50-90 - i wish the rest of the industry was as precise and consistent!

if i wasn't sitting on my own pile of winchester 45-70 brass.....

Mine ought to be in from Starline on Thursday. That's great, because now I can have some 45-70 cases to trim down to 45-60 to feed my '76. It doesn't shoot as well as my 1895CB, but it is much easier on the shoulder, and it's good enough for minute of buffalo shots.
