    WTB: 38 super Brass and Dies

    I am looking to buy some 38 super brass and dies.
    I prefer Lee dies (due to PTED), but will consider other brands.


    edited: I guess I am gonna wait on buying any brass, til I get the pistol in my possesion, thanks to those who have been educating me.

    I have a small bag of new 38 super brass and a box of bullets that I will sell. Not sure how many brass are in there. Will count them and let you know how many and how much to see if you are interested.

    I am reading and reading posts about the 38 super and 1911
    and I have come to the conclusion, I will need to be picky about brass, and the bottom line is, I am only interested in Starline "comp" brass.

    I have two Colts in 38 super, I've never had any problems shooting regular 38 super brass. You may want to verify that whatever gun you plan to purchase or already have will work with the 38 comp brass. I might be think wrong, but I believe most "race" guns are setup for the "comp" brass (smaller rim I think) and have a special extractor.

    You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who they think can do nothing for them.
