Well, that's why I wanted to clarify the definitions that we might be using for "failure".
I've ruined a few but I've never had a usage related failure and I've always been surprised that so many people do.
I don't think I do anything special and while I certainly don't have decades of experience and 10s of thousands of rounds loaded, I would think that some of these failures that appear so common would show up in my nearly 3 years and into the several hundreds of rounds loaded for each of several different cartridges.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
