Searched and searched and couldn’t find the answer.

I realize there is a million variables and so let’s pretend it’s not a hot load and proper case work is done between firings.

I’m helping my brother in law and after 2 firings I’m seeing sign of brittleness in the mouth which led me to this question.

I have some that has been loaded 9 times with no prob. But I only use 1x fired brass for hunting.
What are the signs you are seeing?

Currently have between 6 and 8 firings between cases. Primer pockets still quite snug. I anneal between every and every other firing (AMP) and usually trim when needed - usually every other to every second firing. Longevity appears to be excellent. Nosler brass.

I should have said Nosler brass. I’m actually want the AMP annealing machine but can’t find one in stock. See I had no clue people are getting that kind of life out of the brass

I am a bit surprised myself ... but not complaining, esp as I also have a 30 Nosler.
 

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
