    Do you bevel the inside case neck each time you shoot or just one time?

    The only time you need to chamfer the neck is after case trimming.

    I'll try and clear that up a bit. You need one anytime there isn't one. So you need to bevel (chamfer) new brass and anytime you trim thereafter. The bevel always stays with the case unless you make it go away by trimming.

    to fine tune a bit, if you are shooting flat base bullets, chamfer is mandatory. Period. If you are shooting vld's, chamfer with a vld tool. If shooting BTHP's, chamfer is nice if there but amust as stated, after trimming and first time. Overbore
