I primarily inspect after going to the range and chuck any split necks. Anything with a ring towards the head gets a bent paperclip stuck in it. I usually shoot multiple calibers during a range session so i can inspect while sorting. Cases with splits make a different sound when they are rattling around. After tumbling, I roll them around on a towel or old tshirt and any questionables get looked at again.

The get checked again during the reloading process.

Been about the same here in NC. Several days over 100 this summer, and mostly mid to high 90's, with humidity you could cut with a knife. On top of that, I had carpal tunnel surgery a couple weeks ago, and can't even process brass!

Going back to work is looking better all the time!

Please forgive me(I am a Gulf Coast guy too, but here in Bantario, Canuckistan(Ontario Canada) it was a balmy high of 78 with a breeze off Lake Ontario. A great day to ride the Ultra Classic along the Lake for a 100 klicks.

Flame suit on..... Let the flaming begin. Lol
