New box of cases

What are the first things you guys do to prepare a new box on good cases before they are ready for your "good" load?

    #1 Full length size
    #2 Trim the necks
    #3 Deburr the primer pockets
    #4 Weigh all cases
    #5 Sort by weight(less than 1 grain)

    START RELOADING

    Be carefull and have fun

    Do you find that you get the best accuracy the first time a case is fired? Or is it best after the case is once fired in your rifle? Then neck sized?

    Hello,

    Fireformed first and then either neck sized or partial full sized.
