Brass- how many cycles?


Recommended Posts

How many times? You tell us! Many times....I don't think there is a set point for any brass, as all is different....Load till the primers get loose or they split (I've got 38 super brass that I know I've loaded at least 12-15 times and it's still fine). How can you tell how many times it's been fired? Easy answer.....you can't.

9mm brass can be reloaded as many times as you need to.

from the 5th time reloaded,i check for dents or airline cracks and out of specs flash holes.

i load my 40 for major in a G35 , then i'm more cautious with the brass ; but only because of the lack of support in glock's 40 barrels .i can get like 5-6 reloads out of my 40S&W brass ; then , when the brass are stretched after 5-6 resizing,i don't take any chances, i ditch them . anyways most of my brass comes from the range, so i don't mind.
