    I can give it to you in short version: It's for trimming cartridge cases with a file. Typically this dies is used in conjunction with case forming (like making .243 from .308) and almost always after the final full length resizing. If you have a trimmer and aren't planing on full length sizing, you can set that trim die aside.~Muir
