    I'm surprised they don't make 25/20. Lots of folks seem to be looking for it and they already make 32/20 on occasion. Shouldn't take much to change over. And they used to make 25/20.

    Hello all - I don't frequent this board, but a friend clued me into the discussion and thought I should step in and make a correction here - Starline DOES indeed anneal it's bottle necked cases. It would be almost impossible to make otherwise. As others have pointed out, we simply choose to polish the anneal marks out during the final wash where we also apply the protectant to the cases. We like our cases shiny when they leave here. While skipping this step could be seen as saving cost - the scrap rate would then go through the roof and actually cost us more to make. Not to mention the poor performance of the brass once it got into your hands.

    Sorry to intrude, we feel forums are for shooters - not for us supplier to clog up, but I did want to set the record straight on that single issue.

    Carry on and happy shooting!

    Will it happen?!?!?!? Probably. WHEN will it happen?!?!?! Not so easy to answer. Not a caliber we are actively working on - I can say that for sure. Sorry!

    Thanks to Starline Brass there are some old BP rifles as well as newer reproductions making smoke. I sure wish they could expand their line too. But, I am grateful for the brass they make that fills the empty space where almost no other brass could be made or found. Just two examples that filled the need for me is 50-90 Sharps and the 45- 2-6/10" (45-100) cases. Many others too!... And the quality is high. I am hoping for 40-70 Sharps straight myself.

    Also, you will see Starline Brass generously supporting shooting matches with gift certificates. They give a lot away. American made and worth my support.
    I shoot 25-20 WCF and it took a bit of a learning curve for me to make it from Starline 32-20 WCF but I have it down now with a very low failure rate. It keeps my two 1892's and my 16 year old son plinking with me! Good stuff!

    Now that we have Matt's attention, I would like to thank him for making 50-70,45-90, 32-20, and a couple more calibers. If things ever slow down for them, maybe a run of 25-20 Win and 25-20SS, 30-40 Krag, 25 and 30Rem, and .41 Swiss CF. Hey, it don't cost too ask ! Anyway, thank you guys for making us great affordable brass for some great old guns.

    by the way, the reason you see annealing colors on milsurp ammo is because it is milspec to not polish off the annealing colors.

    I have also heard that. The military brass they want visual proof that the annealing was done. I could see where an unscrupulous contractor could skip that step or it could be skipped accidentally and create some fragile brass due to forming the case necks from harder brass that hadn't been annealed.

    Scrap.... because all the really pithy and emphatic four letter words were taken and we had to describe this way of getting casting material somehow.

    agreed. I have scrounged 300 25-20 brass over the years....some bought here from the late Grumpa.
    Collector and shooter of guns with selector switches and threaded barrels. Collector of suppressors, SBR's, AOW's and SBS's. Lead and brass scrounger. Never too much brass, lead or components in inventory! Always looking to win beauty contests with my reloads.

    I wanted Starline to make .43 Spanish brass and wrote them a letter requesting them to do so. At least they were kind enough to write me back and say that they had no plans now or in the future to make .43 Spanish. I know that Bertram make the .43 but I have not had very good luck with their Spanish brass. james

    I have been on the lookout for 25/20 since I bought a 92 Win in 25/20 several years ago. I have managed to get 5 or 6 hundred but they seem to have completely dried up in the last couple of years. I would get another 500 if Starline would make a run. It's about the neatest small game rifle and cartridge I have seen.

    Neat to see Starline on here, i've been working with a bunch of their 444 recently and i'm quite happy with it. Don't stop making that one.
