Just wondering how others track how many times a case has been reloaded. I am loading 22-250 and really not sure how many times they can be reloaded. I have about 200 cases currently but it is difficult keeping track of how many times they have been reloaded. Maybe it does not matter and just keep looking for stress on them when you reload.

For years I've put my brass up in 50 round plastic boxes, with an identifying number. I keep track of the "batch" history in the logbook for that round.
Case prep;
#Times loaded;
Times annealed, trimmed... You get the idea...:D

I try to keep track of how many times they have been reloaded. But if I get them mixed up I don't worry about. You will get open primer pockets and cracked necks to let you know when they had enough.

depends...

run near or above factory recommendations and it's maybe 3-5.

run at low or mid-range and it should be considerably more. You also usually get more loadings if you neck size rather than full length resize
