    .243 case lenth

    just a quick one,

    I've just necked sized some once fired brass and the book says the .243 case is 2.0450 although I know shorter is the norm, but after measuring this batch their all 2.0350 the question is can the cases be to short?
    by the way the cases are lapua

    No. They'll be fine. They are .010" under spec which would (generally ) be the "trim to" length anyhow.~Muir
