Reloaded ammo split brass

I loaded up a bunch of 45 acp & 223 ammo back in the early 90s. A 50 cal ammo can full of each. Have been shooting some of it now and then ever since. Recently at least 1/2 of them come out with the brass split. I even pulled some of the bullets out of the 45s to check the powder charge and the brass split when pulling the bullets with a kinetic puller. Probably most people don't keep ammo around that long but wondering if anyone has any ideas on this. The only thing I can come up with is the fact that this was before I started using latex gloves to handle cleaned brass and my finger prints are etched into them, maybe that weakened the brass.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
