Re: Case Trimming

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

Re: Case Trimming

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.

Re: Case Trimming

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?

Re: Case Trimming

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.
