I full length size & trim to length the first loading, neck size for 3 or 4 loadings then anneal the cases and start the process again.
I have used some cases up to 14 times, but they usually last 8-12 before splits start, I usually do batches of 50 for bottle-neck cases and
always full length size straight walled cases (38-55 & 375 winchester).

I will amend my postings somewhat, I have three 8mm's and two 7mm's, (all x57's) so I have to keep track of which rifle the ammo is going in, I take the most care for the hunting ammo, the plinking ammo not so much, but I still try to get the most life out of my brass regardless. If I know I'm going to be shooting multiple guns in the same caliber in the same outing, I will just full length size and call it good. But I do try to tailor ammo to each one individually. I guess that officially qualifies me as a "gun nut" !! LOL :D
