what is 45 colt brass

45 Colt Brass picture

45 Colt Brass Originally designed for use with blackpowder, the .45 Colt is one of the most powerful, commonly available handgun cartridges when loaded with smokeless powder. Our .45 Colt brass has been tested to .44 Magnum pressures in gun systems suitable for such loads. *New brass may require neck sizing for use with .452″ and smaller bullets.

Starline Brass prides itself on producing the highest quality brass case available. Their brass is comprised of 70% copper and 30% zinc and is vertically drawn during the manufacturing process which results in more uniform wall thickness. Cases are annealed between each draw to ensure consistent metallurgy in all lots. Each brass case is hand inspected to guarantee the highest quality possible.

Starline Brass is located in Sedalia, MO and has been in business for over 30 years. Trust Starline for your next reloads, you won’t be disappointed. New, unprimed brass. This is not loaded ammunition. Bulk brass should be full-length sized, trimmed and chamfered before loading

45 colt Brass Preparation: 

With bulk rifle brass you may sometimes notice a few case mouths are “out of round” or slightly dented below the shoulder.  These imperfections occur in the final tumbling wash operation after the case mouth has been annealed.  Brass manufacturers are aware of the case cosmetics and have worked to mitigate it, but due to equipment design, denting may still occur.  Minor dents are normally removed in the first firing and will not affect case life or performance.  On non-plated brass, you may also notice all the anneal stain might not be polished off, which may give the case neck a pinkish color.  With some smaller caliber cases you may notice the case mouths to be slightly belled.

With all new rifle brass, you should first straighten out the case and case mouth, then chamfer and debur the case mouth inside and out.  To straighten the case mouth, run the case part way into the sizer die and let the expander ball straighten the brass.  To prevent the case neck from stretching, be sure to lubricate the case neck inside the case mouth.

If you are using Nickel plated brass, special care must be taken to lubricate the cases prior to sizing them.  Nickel plating is harder than brass and the cases require more effort in sizing.  In the event a case becomes stuck, purchase a stuck case remover; don’t use pliers, screwdrivers or other common household tools which could damage your sizing die.

    Hard to find and at a decent price. Now I can feed my 6 shooters.

  2. Vanammo

    This is strong brass. Mics to the proper specs as is, even though I full length case size all of my new brass anyway. According to “Starline”, their “.45 COLT” brass is tested to the same pressure as their “.44 MAG” brass. Great for beefed up loads in my “Ruger New Model Blackhawk”

  3. Vanammo

    I reload 45 Colt, 38 Special, 357 mag, and 38-55 Winchester, all using Starline brass. I use smokeless, black, and BP sub (Hodgdon 777), and some of my 45 Colt is on its 50th+ loading. Some are starting to crack or split, but only after 20+ stout loads of H777, so it’s my loads, not the brass. I’ve bought it new, and reused Starline brass from HSM as well. Never a bad case! My hottest loads were experimental, having crammed 40 grains of BP and a hard cast 250 grain bullet over a Winchester LMP primer. The brass help up fine, but I’m never trying that again! Just don’t abuse it and this stuff will last for YEARS.

  4. Vanammo

    Grabbed a bag before getting sold out again. Have been waiting for quite awhile having it back in stock. Good quality brass that will last even longer if you keep your loads light to moderate

  5. Vanammo

    Best brass around for high pressure 45 colt blumpkin loads. Use this brass in a ruger blackhawk bisley for them hard hitting ruger only loads for hunting blumpkins. I love blumpkins

  6. Vanammo

    I started using this brass years ago. I usu it in 9mm, 45acp, 44 mag, 45 colt, 45/70 , no problems. The nic brass will crack upon the 3 rd firing, but it’s not just Starline all af it does it no matter what brand it is. I just stick with the brass , brass. I have reloaded the brsss up to 25 times and it’s still ok. Good stuf

  7. Vanammo

    I bought this for safety as we have large hogs and now and then a run in with a bear, thanks to being careful I hope I have not had to use it. The brass works very good I have used it for awhile and I haven’t found any downfalls

  8. Vanammo

    starline brass is top quality all the way

  9. Vanammo

  10. Vanammo
