Starline brass - .243 Win

Post by Quicker » Tue Aug 11, 2020 9:25 pm

This is a review of 200 .243Win Starline brass.

The idea is to measure the brass as I use it and to update the measured values accordingly. They started out as normal .243Win but will be used in a .243Win AI off the bat.

Store:
Not bought from the big shop but rather an online store with super service, CV19 taken into consideration.

Packaging:
They were packed in the yellow plastic Starline packets @100 cases per packet.

Vernier used:
Frankford Aresenal digital jobbie

Scale:
Peregrine digital jobbie

General notes:
I unfortunately do not own a micrometer thus I couldn’t measure case neck thickness, the same way “Ultimate Reloader” does.
It seems like the cases take a beating in the plastic packaging bags, more so, than cases packaged in plastic boxes.
Case No.72 had a partial finger print on it when it came out the bag which might indicate factory inspection. Strangely though this case fell right in the middle of the average weight and case length out of the batch of 200.
Out of the 200, 27 cases had visually deformed/dented case necks/mouths.
All 200 cases have a lip on the case mouth from the manufacturing process which will need to be removed.
This with the afore mentioned deformed necks have prompted me to look for a .243Win full sizing die to remedy this (apologies for snooping on your “wanted” thread) expense which I was hoping to dodge.

Below are images off the cases and measurements taken to date.

Some of these seem oval but that is just the camera angle.

These are the “27 bad” apples who’s case necks/mouths are really bad.

I will update the tables and values as I prime and fire form the brass to give a better indication of what their actual .243Win AI internal volume is.

Koop net Lapua doppe dan hoef jy nie al die bogenoemde toetse te doen nie.

Lapua is beslis die benchmark, en dis juis waarom toetse gedoen word om te sien hoe meet enigiets ander teen die beste.

Ek is self 'n Lapua man, en het nog heelwat geseelde bokse.

Toetse wat ek met my Lapua doppe gedoen het, het gewys dat wanddikte variasies het van 0 tot 2thou met een of twee uitskieters van 2.5thou.

Dieselfde toets soos jy kan sien in die video hierbo het my Starline doppe variasies gehad van 0 tot 1thou met 1.5thou weer die uitsonderlike uitskieters, ook een of twee doppe uit die pak.

Selfs met watervolume was die Starline beter die Lapuas wat ek het.

Die een toets wat ek nog nie gedoen het nie is om te kyk hoeveel skote die Starline doppe gaan gee. Daar weet ons almal reeds dat Lapua baie goed hou en baie skote gee.

Ons sal maar wag en sien hoe dit uitdraai.

Ek sê nie Starline is beter as Lapua nie, maar sover dit wat ek kon sien is hulle beslis nie slegter nie.

Ek verstaan jou punt en siening. Party mense verkies mainstream en ander wil sien om te glo.

Goeie middag. Myne is wel nou nie 243 win nie maar wel 6.5 Creed SRP doppe en ek het my eerste 50 tot 15 keer gelaai met net 1 keer se annealing vir baan skiet en nou doen hulle diens as my jag doppe, ek glo as ek hulle beter opgepas het sou hulle seker nog beter lewensduur gegee het. Maar ek is tevrede met 15 keer se herlaai en as ek hulle nie verloor nie dalk self nog tot 16 of 17.
Hulle mag dalk nie Lapua wees nie, maar hulle is ook nie Lapua prys nie.
