I talked to a local High Power rifle guru. He loads his rifle brass ten times each then retires it after that.
This reduces the risk of a case splitting from weakened brass. Apparently, a case splitting in the chamber of a high power rifle is similar to taking a blow torch to it, as the pressures are much higher than in pistol.
I decided to follow his advice, as brass is cheaper than a new barrel.
A slow hit beats a fast miss.
