I agree with The Shadow. Part of the problem is "really light target loads" may feel really mild to shoot, but may still reach full pressure, or enough to rupture an already weakened case. How much would that take? That's the question, aint it?

Often, "light target loads" means using Bullseye or another similar fast powder, that will still reach high pressures even though bullet velocity is relatively low.

You may be able to figure out a "target load" with slower powder that really does operate at low pressure, but the risk doesn't seem worth it, just to re-use some trashed brass.
