Thread: When do you case trim?

  1. #1

    When do you case trim?

    After recently acquiring a Hornady case trimmer. It seems that the pilot will only fit into a case which hasn't been neck sized which got me thinking! When should you case trim, and why?
    MS

    Its the wrong pilot then ms, trimming is done after fl sizing,trim so case fits into the chamber and uniformity, you can set trimmer up to take minimal amount off so the case doesnt grow so much on firing,neck sized cases wont trim.

    I usually trim on a Wednesday night about 8:30pm

    Seriously though .... I always de-prime, clean, inspect, full length size then trim. I then re-inspect while chamfering and de-burring.

    I measure the cases after full length resizing and if they need trimmed, I trim them. If they don't need trimmed, I don't trim them. Regards JCS

    This is not my experience with the Hornady trimmer: I wonder whether your neck-sizing thing is especially narrow, or something like that?

    Just out of interest, what cal is this a problem with?

    After sizing and it is done every time a case is reloaded.
    I have had the too small to get the trimmer in with a Lee Classic loader, Lee replaced the sizing part as it was too tight.

    After every resizing, most of the time nothing needs taken off the cases
