I kinda have a rookie question on trimming brass. I am surprised I have reloaded for a little over a year and haven't confronted this issue yet. I have always gone by the Lyman manual on the trim to length on my 338 Lapua brass, which it says is 2.714 I believe. The Nosler manual says its 2.724 I think. Ok. Why the difference? Any particular length better? My next question is about the "trim to length" vs "maximum case length". I understand that trim to length is the minimum and the maximum length is just that. So your resized brass needs to always be somewhere in between in length and never over the maximum. Gotcha. Here is what I would like to know. I have always trimmed to the minimum length listed in the Lyman manual after each firing because the 338 brass never seems to stay under the trim to length after firing. What effect would it have on accuracy if I skipped trimming a couple loads and let it grow without reaching the maximum case length? This would inevitably not produce consistent lengths in my brass since some tend to grow slightly more than others per shot it seems like. Anyhow... thanks for any advice yall could throw my way.
