As a general rule, straight walled brass until it cracks or the primer pocket gets loose, bottlenecked rifle brass the same + watch for thinning at the web, and finally magnum brass that can reach excessive diameter just ahead of the belt. That can be cured with a special die 'though. I was always told magnum brass has the shortest life, but my .300 win mag and Nosler custom brass has yet to see a failure for any reason. Really premium rifle brass can also be annealed to avoid neck splitting and is a good idea anyway to produce even neck tension in the finished load.
