it's going to depend on how lose your chamber is. No comparison to .45. Bottleneck brass streatches with each firing and that brass you trim to get the case length back to spec has to come from somewhere. That somewhere is near the base. you can feel for the ring that is formed on the inside with a small pick.
Second issue is the neck work hardening. once again, depends on how much the neck stretches on firing. eventually it work hardens and then splits. i looked at re-annealing but decided it was too difficult to get the setup for a consistent heating/cooling. Others may have figured it out and maybe they can get you started
