Re: Newbie Case Size Question

HORNADY 7th shows the following for 223 and for 223 service rifle data.
MAX C.O.L. 2.250
Max case length: 1.760
Case trim length: 1.750
I also agree with AJ Peacock, the important thing is consistency.
I use a Wilson case trimmer and there are times that once set I am surprised at the consistency that I get with there trimmer.
Other people will tell you to have your chamber measured for depth and cut the cases to 0.0000000001 less than the chamber length.
I am kidding at the number, but I do have a friend that if he could, he would trim that close.
The important thing as others have said, too long is the one thing you donít want your cases to be.
