I am looking to buy some 44 Rem Mag brass. Starline is the lowest in cost. Problem is that I have been told it does not reload many times,except with light loads, and has a high rate of spliting. Can anyone give me advice on what brand of brass I should purchase or info on the Starline?

Buy the Star Line, load it up, and have fun. It's about half the cost of Winchester, or Remington, so if lasts only half as long, it then becomes the same price. I use it as much as I can, and have had no problems with it.

I use *---* 45 win mag. About the same pressures as 44 mag. Works great. I usually don't reload them over 4 or 5 times. Got my money's worth. For rifle I go with Lapua.

Starline brass is great brass..... brass cases of any brand will only last x-number of loadings depending on how "hot" you load them. .......Don in SC

I use a lot of Starline and haven't had any greater issue with it splitting that other brands. I do find, however, that nickel-plated brass tends to split more than unplated. It costs more too, so for me plain old brass, brass is just fine.

i have never heard a bad word about Starline. If you are concerned about splitting, stay away from nickel-plated brass.

Starline brass is made in the same town as Sierra bullets.

Seems I read Mrs Sierra owns/runs the Starline company.

I bought a lot of Starline brass - it is great!

I heard it is considered the highest quality premium brand. I only buy new brass when I cannot find once-fired.

If so, It's good news. Sierra is all about quality and perfection.

I don't think you have to worry too much about Starline brass, it's a good product. I use it in full power .41mag loads and it can take it repeatedly just fine.
