    I shoot a lot of S&B down the running moose range. I reload once for hunting loads and then sling them. But then i do get a lot of once fired.

    I can only speak for their .303 brass; and I'd definately not recommend that for reloading. They are ok for their initial firing, but after that it's a lottery. Some of them will split or perforate on the neck on the second firing, most will do it on the third. After that you start getting into case separation teritory. I have no experience of their brass for other calibres.

    I have quite a lot of S&B 7x57R cases, a few of them fired once. We shall see how they fare the second time, but at the rate I'm using them, that could take years.

    I have some S & B once fired in 308Win and find them very hard and the primer pockets are very tight and need a lot of depth removing when uniforming. I slung them after trying a dozen or so.

    I have a fair number of S&B cases in .243, .308 and .222 and despite reloading them between 3-5 times (depending on batch/calibre) I have had no reloading problems at all: no erratic velocities, no split necks, no signs of incipient case separation, nothing.

    Consequently I have been very surprised to read of others' negative experiences on this thread.

    If you have once-fired S&B available, I'd say grab it and use it.

    Most probably a problem with your rifle. I'm onto my third loading with my No 4. With a friend's No 4 (a 1943 war production) he gets head separation on first reload and so gave up.
