It was put out by Starline, so there is some sales pitch stuff in it and towards the end.  Many of you will know quite a bit of this info, but for those that do not, you might enjoy it.  It mentions Mr. Roy some, since his "wildcats" turned out to be some great cartridges.  MM

Good article,   I wonder what the connection is  Starline brass 1300 w. henry,  Sadalia, Mo and Sierra bullets 1400 w. henry, Sadalia, mo   ?

Zonie, you are SHARP.  They would almost have to be next door to each other, being that they are factories.  It would be interesting to know if there was in "unofficial" affiliation.  MM
