Used Reloading Brass

How many times can you re-use good quality brass?

Hey, I´m kind of new to reloading and would like to know how many times I would be able to use, for example, good quality .300 WSM brass.

Thanks!
Kevin

Kevin,
I am a reloading instructor - how long brass will last all depends on how good you take care of your brass!

If you use medium to normal loads, carefully eject each round onto a dry surface, and use only neck Sizing Dies - you can get 7-12 uses from 300 WSM.

If you go to hot loads near max or over max - it will decrease the life to just 3-5 loadings. If you eject the brass into puddles, snow, or wet grass it will anneal one side of the case - and this is the side that will crack first - this is a case killer for sure. If you full length size all your brass - this is tough on a case as well.

You only need to full lenght size rifle brass that is used in a semi-auto rifle, or, you are sharing the ammo amoung other rifles. If you have a bolt gun, and don't share the ammo with your buddies or other rifles - you can greatly extend the life of the brass - and increase accuracy a tad - by going to neck sizing dies.

If you take good care of your brass - you need to keep track of how many times it has been used. It is very important to disgard it before the case cracks - because these cracks are releasing hot plasma like gases into your chamber and can hurt it. Nothing sadder than loading up 100rd or more and having the first two give out - not only have you wasted the time making the ammo - now you have to waste time taking them all apart.

Generally - you can judge your neck sized brass by how easy and nice to read the headstamp is or still is. (Except for winchester - they have a shallow headstamp!). When the brass headstamp is hard to read who the manufacturer is - the brass is ready to go to the recycling center.

Hope this helps.
