Yes, they will separate, but you can avoid this for the most part, by keeping your brass separated, and only neck size the brass, I get about four reloads out of new brass, then i throw it away.

Never had a case split or neck separation on new brass,
Or once fired brass, you need to keep it for a specific
Rifle. And it will last for 4 or 5 reloads.

My buddy that has the farm, with the 300 yd range, has had some health issues, but when he gets things under control, he has a shotgun that he. Wants me to help him get site in for his wife., when he calls me, I will bring my
Enfield, and my woodchuck target, and see if I can get that varmint.

As I said this was a problem that the next owners had with the Bubba SMLEs. I did not have that problem myself. I always checked my brass and I did reload.
