We shoot a lot of .204 Winchester brass and have about 1% loss after each shoot. Sent several cases back to Winchester and they sent us a check back . It's just crappy brass. My .02 cents worth.

I use Remington brass for necking up or down for different rounds. Right now I am shooting a 7-30 Waters with the brass made our of 30-30 brass and using Remington brass I have only lost 1 case to a split neck out of a thousand.

Usually caused by thinning due to repeated loadings and trimming. But you say first loading, I would say it is some anomaly in the batch of brass. If you have repeated problems and especially if you see this with other loading then you need to start looking at the rifle.
Be sure and check case length, even with new brass.
