    minimum case trim length for .30-06

    Hi, does anyone have any data on what the minimum case trim length for a .30-06 should be ? My Lee loading manual only gives a case size and not a min or max trim length, I'm loathed to buy a new manual just for that little tit bit of info.
    Kind regards, Olaf

    Presumably .30-06 Springfield cartridge....in the Lyman manual, the Trim to length is given as: 2.484"
    Max case length: 2.494"
    Hope this helps. ATB

    That's great, I've made up a batch of test loads at 2.484 to try out. I'd bought a bag of really cheap brass last week (new stuff) and that was all around 2.484 to 2.494 (ish) so it looks like 10 thou is the tolerance.
    Thanks for taking the time to reply chaps.

    Kind regards, Olaf
