Case Prep???

I was wondering what you guys do to your cases before reloading? Also what does turning the necks mean? Iv been using Remington brass and Iv heard you need to prep it more than say nosler. Thanks!

    Here's another good tool for sorting brass. I seperate all case mouths in piles of .001 and less, .001-.002, If it's good brass I can the rest. If it's not so good brass I run another pile up to .003. THe other steps Russ mentioned are good. I bought some Remington 300 RUM brass and it is crap. I guess I got spoiled on Norma and Lapua but I'll get this to work. It's just back to basics and more prep time. But it's still crap!
