Re: Deburr question
The standard I gave is assuming the cases are trimmed to min length, after they have grown to max length.
In your scenario, yes absolutely, that standard wouldn't hold true.
I would look at it this way.
Assuming the difference between min and max case length is .010 inches, the cases should be thrown after .050 of an inch of brass has 'flowed' forward. In my scenario this would be when they needed that fifth trimming.
So in your example, if the cases are growing .002, and they are trimmed after every firing, they should be good for 25 reloads or 25 trimmings, assuming nothing else is wrong with the case.
