Question: case prep after pulling bullets???

I had to pull some bullets today, but I have a question. Do I need to resize the case mouth before I try to seat another bullet?

    Nah.

    Recharge > seat > shoot!


    (...so long as you didn't use the "pliars and wiggle-out" bullet pulling method and the brass was in good shape to begin with the neck and tension will be just fine)

    Thanks. I used a kinetic puller (you know, the plastic hammer) so all should be good then!

    Just check & make sure none of the mouths were dinged by a bullet whipping back up into it.
    I used to get this with hammer pulling, till I got good at it.

    I think its important to again deburr and champfer the case mouths, just to insure the next bullet will enter smoothly. lf I dump the powder, I will again expand and resize the necks to keep tension equal.

    You do not have to, except if you want the cases to be uniform.

    If that matters start over.
