Default Head gasket reuse?

Normally I'd put a new head gasket but getting an 80mm for a 301 is an odd part.
It has a fire ring and the material around it is ok but it did try to come apart around the edges.
You can see on the left side.

Worth trying or keep searching.

I’ve done it with the fire ring gaskets. I knew I was pushing my luck when I did, but I never had one let go. I say decide for yourself and own it if it works, or if it don’t.
