Nickel .38 Super Brass

I've been looking for this brass and it seems the only place I would be able to get it from with any regularity would be directly from Starline themselves. But to purchase the nickel plated they only do it in very large quantities (9000+).
I thought I saw something on this forum a little while back about people looking for .38 Super brass. Would there be any interest if I were to make a dealer sized order for others to purchase from me? Just throwing it out there I guess.

It really depends on how much more it costs than the standard brass. I would probably be willing to purchase around 500 myself. I cant imagine you having much trouble selling the rest around here.

In order for me to consider doing it I would probably be charging $100 per 500. That is the shipped price. Which is around $25 more per 500 not including shipping over ordinary brass cases.

G'day. I have been using new Magtech 38 Super nickle brass. It is loaded to Major power factor and fired in a SVI Single stack racegun.

The brass is first class quality and shoots and reloads great.
Here in Australia, it is about the same price as Starline brass cases (not nickle).
Regards, Trevor.

Nickel brass splits sooner than regular old brass.
I am a rather brilliant surgeon, perhaps I can help you with that humpů

I've been ordering nickel plated 38Super brass, in smaller lots, from Midway without any problems. The nickel plating helps me to separate them from 9mm.
