I have Starline brass for my .41 Magnum. I bought it over 10 years ago. (I don't shoot handguns much at all these days and I would have to go dig up the details of the load.) Great stuff.

I'm even considering getting .308 brass from them for my next barrel on my match rifle. I usually buy Lapua exclusively for that, but Starline impresses me. A lot.

The only thing I find with new STARLINE brass is that it's "dry" when it's new, can't think of a better term. Whatever they use as a final clean up, really cleans up the brass. I found with 10mm, 41 and 44 mag that the expander/bell die DRAGS badly when the brass is new. (Dillon 550 with Dillon dies)

So now I tumble new brass for an hour or so. The walnut media as well as a dash of DILLON media additive (polish) solves that issue.

Once it's been fired, no issues.

Starline is by far the best brass I've used in .357, .41 & 44 Magnum and Special. It's tough, uniform in length and best of all, available. Rod

Hope I can help here. Starline brass is GTG. I have experienced no split cases with my moderate loadings for this caliber.

I normally load 215 grain jacketed, poly-coated, and lead bullets. With this bullet weight atop 7.0 grains of Unique or 8.0 grains of Herco, my S & W Model 58 shoots very close POA/POI at 25 yards with its fixed sights.

Good Luck!

Great brass, in my experience. I use it for .44 magnum.

I use Starline for .41, largely because there's no used brass out there in .41.

You cannot go wrong with Starline. Great stuff.

+1 on the Kudos for Starline in general, and .41 Mag specifically.

God, grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway; the good fortune to run into the ones I do; and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Starline is what everyone else has to measure by.

I prefer Remington brass, but last year it seemed everyone was sold out, so I went with Starline. I purchased several hundred pieces for reloads in my Super Blackhawk and T/C Contender. I kept my Remington brass for my Super Redhawk. All three handguns are in .44 Magnum.

The Starline brass has been very good. I did get one split case while shooting in the Contender, but it could have just been a bad piece of brass. I have not had any issues with the brass since.

I would not hesitate to use Starline brass.

About to buy some Starline 41 mag brass here. Just bought an early 80’s S&W Model 57, 6” barrel.

The gun is in great shape.

Starline is one of very few companies out there that simply makes brass and not ammo. They also produce brass for some of the ammo companies.

It's likely not the greatest brass EVER built, but it's as good as most anything... and in a chambering such as your .41 LC, which is an old time low-pressure round, it'll likely last as long as anything out there made by anyone in that caliber.

It's life span will depend more on the stiffness of your loads and the amount of roll crimp you employ as it will be about the name stamped on the case head.

Great brass. I use it in .41 mag but find the primer pockets are a bit tight the first time I load them. The comment about it being “dry” is what I have experienced as well. An hour in the tumbler takes care of it.
