    I have not read much discussion on the pros/cons of using trim dies. I have a Redding trim die and haven't used it yet. Any tips from people who have used them? Why aren't they used more??

    Trim dies result in the case mouth being pushed out of round by the file. Probably not a big deal if you are shooting at big game under 500yds. Having a good square case mouth is more important as the range increases or the size of the target decreases. Kirby is gone off hunting so I 'm just filling in for him. I believe that is what he would say.
