    What are the first things you guys do to prepare a new box on good cases before they are ready for your "good" load?

    Do you find that you get the best accuracy the first time a case is fired? Or is it best after the case is once fired in your rifle? Then neck sized?

    Hello,

    Fireformed first and then either neck sized or partial full sized.
