Hi Jim,If your minimum chamber length/base to case mouth is 2.502, when should I trim back? Is there a rule of thumb for when to trim? Thanks in advance, Jim R
My exact max case length is 2.502 as provided by my gunsmith and confirmed by the Sinclair case length gauge (wonderful piece of equipment). After 4 or 5 firings from my 6.5-06, they are approaching the 2.470-2.480 range. This is a custom gun with all the measurments in hand so I am not real concerned about SAAMI. Thanks, Jim R
The forum has trashed my two attempts (on two separate occasions) to comprehensively answer your question, so forgive my brevity.I suppose I was trying to be too simple with my question and was not clear. Seems like so many questions posed on forums go on and on and on with info.........
I used the term "min.chamber length/base to case mouth" because that is how it is referred to in the narrative provided with the work. This is the way Clymer Tool refers to this measurement.
It sounds to me there is no rule of thumb for when to trim except to say when it gets too close. The "how close is too close" part was what I was looking for.
Not looking for BR accuracy, but then again, maybe I am! Thanks for the replies, Jim R
