    Winchester brass is some of the thinest / lightest brass on the market normally. Not real sure wheret the starline falls in at. I would try lightening the compression up on the starline to .100 and see if the load duplicates then

    On PD ammo a plunk test for semis and simply insuring it chambers freely in a revlover also might be a good idea. For the plunk test pull the barrel from your pistol and use the chamber to insure rounds drop in freely and fit. A gage can be...
