Starline .455 Webley brass

Post by lamontagne0527 »

Does anyone have any experience with the new production starline brass for .455 webley they are making? Is it good quality and worth the money? Or should i simply stick to my fiocchi brass for now?

In my limited experience Starline brass is better than Fiocchi from the aspect of being not quite as brittle as Fiocchi. I have experienced a few split case necks with Fiocchi in the past but that might be attributable to a bad lot, I dunno. I also like that Starline brass uses large pistol primers instead of small pistol primers like the Fiocchi brass but this is more of a personal preference as opposed to being "better".

Starline makes decent cases. Worth the money? Well, I thought the old Hornady Mk II cases were priced too high until they became unobtainable. If Starline's .455 cases don't sell then they won't think twice about dropping them. So... outside of the converted Bertram brass I guess Starline is the currently the only game in town for new brass without having to buy loaded ammo.

A friend and I bought 500 of these Starline cases but each of us only wanted 200 cases apiece, so I have 100 extra that are listed in the "For Sale/Trade" forum (at my cost) should you prefer 100 instead of Starline's minimum 250 cases requirement.

I've bought 250 but, haven't loaded them yet? Having trouble finding any pure lead for bullets.
