How many times can a .50 be reloaded (safely)? I ordered some(100 for 16.00- once fired,they say they sale more of it then the LC new brass thats .29 each) to use later from Pat's Reloading. I hope they are good to deal with. Shipping was 9.00 though thru usps to me(from Ohio to TN).The guy said couple times but maybe more. He preferred not more than 2 times.

Some people have posted on BH that they have more then 6-7 reloads on theirs with no problems. If you F/L size them it will wear them out faster as your working the brass more. You can also anneal the necks to make them last longer.

The M2 will really destroy brass because it stretchs it alot. Most people will tend to stay away from .50 brass that's been used in an M2. If you do use it, make sure to check it for any signs of being stretched to much and signs of over-pressure.
