Re: Trim length?

I trim when a few hit max, then I trim the lot or box. You can get a little jig that goes in brass and check your actual chamber, then you will know if it is longer or shorter than what is listed.

Re: Trim length?

How do you know what 'max length' is? Have you measured it in your chamber?
I determine max length per my chamber & trim all to the longest length I can get them all to. Hopefully(if I planned it right) this ends up within 5-10thou of chamber end after fireforming.
The closer to chamber end, the faster the neck sealing, with lower sooting & ES.
