I have two kinds of brass... good and bad. Bad goes into the trash. If it doesn't have a split in the neck or other obvious defect, it gets cleaned and dropped into the progressive. If it survives being bulleted, it goes into my gun. If I pull the trigger and the brass has a high pitched "tink" when it hits the ground, it goes in the trash.
Remember that brass you find on the range is, for the most part, once-shot brass, since reloaders take theirs with while non-reloaders just leave it.
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
