Re: What? FL size new brass?

I probably go overboard but I like to start with prepping all of my brass before
I load it.

I full length size,trim to length,de'burr flash hole and weight sort and load in
weighted lots within 1 grain . This way I start with the best brass I can.

Just the way I do it.

I think it depends on your gun and your expectations. I see posts from guys that are fireforming their bechrest cartridges (from a different cartridge) and are shooting in the .2" and .3" area.
For me the accurizing is best done after the first shooting of virgin brass.....I'm the kind of guy that plunges the virgin case over a a lyman M Mandrel.....loads up a favorite recipe...and heads off to the range.

Re: What? FL size new brass?

There was an article in Hand Loader magazine about the futility( my choice of words) of case prepping. Well at least cleaning and squaring of primer pocket and de buring flash hole. How it just doesn't make any difference. My best shooter is my 6x284, upon reading that article I stopped doing all I listed. (This is a case where truth is stranger then fiction) I've been getting more under 1/2MOA group then ever before,since I stopped those practices,plus speed-ed up my loading operation to boot.So bottom line is I'm making it happen with out doing all that extra work.
How does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?
