If my brass comes up a little to short to trim I don't worry about it. I just load it, shoot it and check it next time. If it needs trimmed next time then I will trim it. :)

Dittoi ......
I don't worry about "too short" - I worry about "too long" :rolleyes:
I use 2.494 as a max and try to keep them under that. My new Winchester brass typicaly runs about 2.484

You need to take another look at your book or your book could be wrong. Trim to length for the 30-06 is supposed to be 2.484" 2.494" is the MAX case length.
