I am happy with what I have. I do have some other cases which are on their 15th reloading. I wonder if they will make to 50?

The split was definitely on the side of the case, not the top.

There is a term I've forgotten that refers to internal scoring of the brass that occurs during the forming process. Those can turn into longitudinal splits, in which case you just think of it as a stray defect and keep on shooting.
