I feel good if I can get 3-4 reloads out of my Federal hulls when loading steel. The problem is the crimps get soft and do not retard the gas expansion to cause proper combustion to occur, especially in cold weather. I'll load mine 3 times, maybe 4 for warm weather, and then load with lead for crows and then toss. Federals aren't the greatest for reloading, Remington are much better.
