Re: New Brass
Depends on your load and your rifle. High pressure loads tend to reduce brass life, not always.
Are you going to shoot them and reload them until they become work hardened and split, or are you going to anneal them somewhere in between.
Expensive brass like Lapua I would anneal and take good care of. The range and Win stuff maybe, maybe not.
To answer your question, duno, it all depends on you and what you plan to load and how you want to process your fired brass.
