Yeah I'm convinced , I'm going to start mixing and just keep an eye out for the beat up cases. That chart and link was great too. Thanks .
The chart looks great, but I don't like their methodology.

They tested a single lot of each brand, only tested 2 cases from that lot, and only tested in a single pistol.
It's a rather tiny sample size, that might not be at all representative of each overall brand; or even the way those same cases would behave in a different chamber.

I understand it was still a large test (fair number of rounds fired), with quite a bit of time in the project, but the data set is too small to draw definitive conclusions.

The chart, alone, should make a reader question the data set, with it showing some very dramatic differences in the life of cases from the very same lot.
