Re: Case Trimming

Hey Bounty, how much clearance do you give from actual chamber length, to case mouth?

    I keep about .010 to allow some stretching if it is a chamber and brass combo that allows that. Otherwise just work on keeping the carbon out of that area.

    After seeing the Wilson and Forester. Lee seams to be the most bang for the buck. Now my son and I want to start getting into 1000 yard shooting.
    Would the Lee provide the square head or would the Wilson be a better tool?

    If the Lee doesn't leave the case mouth square it's such a small amount that I can't measure it. I've only got dial calipers and regular micrometers but every measurment I can think of taking indicates a square cut. As for the wilson I can't help, I've never used one.
    Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
