I suppose I was trying to be too simple with my question and was not clear. Seems like so many question posed on forums goes on and on and on with info.........

I used the term "min.chamber length/base to case mouth" because that is how it is referred to in the narrative provided with the work. This is the way Clymer Tool refers to this measurement.

It sounds to me there is no rule of thumb for when to trim except to say when it gets too close. The "how close is too close" part was what I was looking for.

Not looking for BR accuracy, but then again, maybe I am! Thanks for the replies, Jim R

The forum has trashed my two attempts (on two separate occasions) to comprehensively answer your question, so forgive my brevity.

Zediker says 0.020 is a practical figure, ie, 2.482 would be the point at which to trim back.

Thanks for that. I felt like I was still in a good range, but thought I would see what others used. I was vague with the question and for that, I apologize. Sometimes my mind works quicker than my fingers......Thanks again, Jim R
