I ordered some brass directly from Starline Brass last week. It was on back-order and the only promise they made was first-come-first-serve with regard to the next production run.
I got an email yesterday informing me that the brass is on the way.
I like the fact that I don't have to keep popping open a distributor's website to see if they have my odd-ball caliber in-stock. I don't know if the week turn-around was just an accident of timing. Regardless, I have a pretty high opinion of how Starline runs their business.
