My experience is that all the hulls seem to split necks after 3 or 4 loadings. The only exception is the new Cheddite hulls loaded on my MEC 9000. The factory reloads always split at the crimp lines formed by the factory crimp. My new Cheddite hull loads don't form a sharply defined crease in the mouth and on firing you often can't tell they've been crimped before. This is just my experience and may or may not be typical of other's reloading efforts.
