Be advised, the current production of LC brass is not the same as it used to be. SO results may vary.I'm just discovering Humpy's posts. Wow- amazing amounts of knowledge. I've gad good success with case life and accuracy with a bunch of LC .308 brass I was given in the '80's - now I know why. I had no money back then and a friend gave me a few hundred once-fired cases. I thought I was just "making do", but I realize I was better off than I thought. I'm not a high volume shooter; I shoot more than most hunters, but not nearly as much as most competitors. Anyway, I prepped about 100 of them and have fired and reloaded some of them more than a dozen times, maybe 2 dozen. The necks did get work-hardened and needed to be annealed, but I don't recall any neck splits or case failures. a few have been taken out of service as the web got thin. I did note early on that I started to get flattened primers at 42.0 gr. of IMR4064 with a 168 gr. bullet, which was below published maximums in several manuals. I know flattened primers aren't always indicative of max pressure, but since I knew military brass tended to be thicker, I didn't go any further. And my rifle really liked 41.5 anyway. I hope I've got 15 or so more years of shooting in me, that gun will probably continue to get a steady diet of LC.
