I have pistol cases in .40, .38, .45 that have been loaded 8-12 times.
Rifle is a bit more tricky to get the max longevity out of. Case annealing, and/or neck size only for bolt guns will maximize case life. Depending on how cheap your supply of brass is, determmines how much effort you want to put into case prep, IMO.
Actually I only started collecting Milsurps 3 years ago. I think I might own about 24...They're cheaper than guns that will most likely never get the opportunity to kill somebody...
Boycott Guns Fishing & Other Stuff in Vacaville!
Tis better to have Trolled & lost, Than to never have Trolled, at all.
