try anealing the case neck after you fireform and see if that doesn't increase the brass life.

I to have a 30 hart and get usually 6 loadings from a single case, I may lose a couple cases during fireforming.

Re: fired formed brass life?

I just finished annealing 350 casing this afternoon. i used the youtube method, sort of. i put my torch in a vise(gently). used a socket that fit in my 3/8 drill so the open end could accept my 223 case. then spun it in the flame. did a 4 mississippi count and tipped the warm casing in a tub of water. worked great and fast.
