Just looking for opinions of the different brands from those who have used them all for loading 45-70. Was looking a prices on Midway and I see that there is quite a bit difference in price. Winchester has been my prefered brand in the past but I have nothing against the other two and have loaded all three brands in the past. The Winchester brass is listed quite a bit more expensive than the others in bulk lots so I'm wondering if its worth the extra money.

Any comments would be appreciated. :wink:

45-70 brass - Winchester vs Remington vs St

I prefer Rem over Winchester and have never tried starline. Primer pockets seem more consistent in the rem and it seems to resixe easier. This is just my opinion and not based on any hard facts but I always buy rem unless it is for my 375 Win.

I have used Starline brass in the 45-70, 44 Special, 44 Mag and the 45 Colt. I like it as well as any I have ever used. It is thicker than most other brands.

45-70 brass - Winchester vs Remington vs St

Thanks for the input Bullseye and Mike H.-

I'm leaning towards the Remington or the Starline brass. I've used both in different calibers over the last few years and did have some problems with the Remington brass. The Starline brass I have used has always been easy to work with and long lasting.

I have used both Rem and Win and while I can't remember off the top of my head which one it was, one of them had a significantly different case capacity than the other did. So be carefull if loading top end loads. KN
