The reason I ask I tried fire forming without annealing the once fired brass and the case split at the neck.

was fired a few years back has gotten brittle. If you have the time, it won't hurt a thing to anneal it.

Yeah it happens, just manage the depth of the annealing

don't get into the shoulders, they will collapse, or telescope. That is interesting to have happen. lol .30-30 brass is available, cheap, and very useful. Fresh once fired always works for me but brass changes with age and how it is stored.
