    Guys are saying they are getting @5 reloads out of 300 brass
    I'd much rather (and did) buy brassmonkeyz prepped, primed & converted LC for $250/1k

    Edit, that primed brass from TopBrass looks better price wise, but it is already once fired

    That is terrible.
    I read one guy got 28 reloads from a group of 30 cases before he retired them.
    He does not load hot though.
    https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/how-many-reloadings-from-300-blk-brass.748387/

    I done some brass fail tests in .308 fu7ll length resizing them but in a bolt gun and some cases went over 50 reloads before the case head got a crack.
    No split necks and accurace was all the same throughout.
    Load was 41.5 + - of varget and 165 game king HPBT .308

    I like bolt guns the best.

    I guess I should have said, at least 5
    Many reporting at least 8 to 15
    It is a low pressure round and a 223/300 case is pretty thin

    I got 10 reloads from 5.56 before they started getting a little brittle. I could have annealed the cases and probably put them back into action, but that caliber of brass was laying all over the ranges for pickup and not worth the effort to anneal. I don't see why a person couldn't get similar performance from .300 BO.
