454 casull brass

Quick question, and it should be one I already know.
454 starline brass that has been fired ounce in a very heavy load, 31.5gr or 296.
Should I reuse this brass or just discard it and use it for low to mild loads then toss it.
The brass is still in good shape, no signs of splitting, primer is in excellent shap., I am thinking I can get at least 2 heavy loads out of the brass before I chuck it.

what are your opinons on this??

Use it.
I see the world thru bloodshot eyes
Streets filled with blood from distant lies
The dogs of war never compromise,
No time for rearranging.

I use .454 for TWO heavy loads, and then drop 10 percent and use it 4-6 more tims for practice.
If you think a mighty military force is expensive, wait 'til you see what a weak one costs.
