Default Why "6" brass reloads?

Just curious as to why a brass case can only be loaded 6 times? I've read and heard from various sources that is the magic number..

So why 6? Who or when was this established? Just curious, as I'm pretty new to reloading and have been wondering this for some time.

Walls get too thin or something? Or maybe applies to rifle more than pistol due to the higher pressure??

Any insight?
