If you keep the loads fairly sane they can be reloaded easily several times or more.
I've got a fairly large reserve accumulated over several decades in the SASS realm. I know some of the cases survived dozens of reloads. Yes, all low end power, yet remarkable survival rate.

And there was considerable difference in the brass brass survival rate vs the nickle brass survival, as well as 'where' the case:eek: failure was likely to occur.

My response may have been somewhat lighthearted, but as new Starline and Cowboy Action loads are both pricey (I own a 45 Colt Henry Big Boy I reload for), the price difference, particularly as every chamber is a law unto it's own (sorry, Cnl. Cooper), in my experience the cost is a bit of a wash. If you can't find brass at all, loaded or not, please let me know and I'll send you at least a couple dozen of once (ish) fired brass to get you started.
