Q about brass life...
I limit our centerfires to five firings, and then stash them away. I know it's possible to get more...but I believe the possibility of issues increase substantially beyond five or six, so I choose to limit my risk and save the time required for more thorough brass inspections...

I read that because of the lower pressures, 9mm brass lasts damn near forever? Shoot it 'till it splits? Is this correct?

We now have (2) 9mm's (9x19), and I just purchased a CZ-82 that's pretty pricey on the brass-cased ammo I need for the indoor range. Looks like I can get 9mm FMJ booloits for around .10, and .364 Maks for .15- so it looks like it makes sense if the brass cost is inconsequential??
