    Hey everyone, have some new Hornady brass for my 6.5 SAUM and was wondering what brass trim length to go with? I've seen everything from 2.015-2.025.

    I've even seen some suggestions of using the shortest one and trimming to that lenght - although that sounds too simple.

    Thanks for the help!

    There is not a logical basis for trimming all to a shortest value.
    You shouldn't guess or solicit for what nobody knows about YOUR chamber.

    Instead, measure your chamber end and trim to be short of it when your brass reaches that far.
    Then ~10thou under is reasonable, even if you don't pay attention with reloading and way oversize your cases.
