I'm just in the process of making up my first set of reloaded ammunition. Brass is all deprimed, cleaned and resized. The data with my full length Lee resizing die says to trim if the cases are beyond 51.18mm. As my Federal brass is only once fired (in my gun), not many of them were over that limit. However, the Lee trimming gauge resizes down to approx 51.04mm when I've used it.
Should I resize all the brass down to the same length of 51.04mm so that they're all of an equal size? It's not going to affect my accuracy in the real world I don't think, I'm not shooting a target shooting rifle at this stage (though I will at some point so I'm looking to develop good habits) and it doesn't take that long to trim a box of casings down to the standard length. Would you habitually resize your brass each time or only when it's got beyond 51.18mm?
The first batch of 50 cases I only trimmed the over-length ones, the second batch I trimmed them all because, well, I'm a little bit ocd like that
