Default Anybody using starline rifle brass?

They started making 7mm-08 which is of interest to me. I like their pistol brass but haven't used any of their rifle brass.

Any thoughts or opinions? Right now I'm mostly using up my old PPU brass, but I'm going to have to buy or make some brass eventually.

I'm using 45-70 Starline for the cheap cost and great reviews.

Really good quality for the price, I use both their handgun and rifle brass.

Starline is making 6.5 Creedmoor brass with small primer pockets, just like Lapua does.

Exciting times!

I've never seen a reason to doubt Starline stuff.

I know their pistol brass well enough, but bottleneck cartridges are another thing altogether, so I just wanted to make sure they were putting as much thought and effort into their rifle offerings as their pistol offerings. Sounds like they are so far, so that's encouraging.

No problems with their 223 so far. Loaded about 350, shot about 50 of it to date

ETA I also found the best deal directly from starline
