Several thousand rounds but not several thousand BRASS.
You should easily get at least 5 reloads from each piece of brass. I don't know about the 35Rem in particular but in much higher pressure cartridges, such as .308Win, cases can be reloaded up to a couple of dozen times, if properly cared for.
50 rounds a year, 1000 brass should last several lifetimes. 500 should be enough for one man's life, even if you lose a bunch.
