For an FAL, yeas, 3 firings are about it. I start having separations on firing number 4.

This does not apply to my AR10, or any other .308/7.62 NATO rifle i've ever had.

I set my headspace on reloaded cases about .004". That's enough for reliability, but not as much as SAAMI, which can get as high as .010".
