Well after 18 reloads on some Lapua 6BR brass both as 6BR and now reformed as 6mmBRX I'm finally getting some random loose primer pockets. This speaks volumes about their quality as I'm betting the rest will go 20+ reloads or more then fall inline with loose pockets. With this kind of life span the cost is clearly justified. My Winchester 308 brass started going south just about 9 reloads and it was split necks/shoulders and loose primer pockets. I'm currently running some Norma 6BR brass now so we will see how it holds up, seems to be great quality as well.
