A recent conversation I had with a tech support guy has me rethinking my brass processing procedures related to rifle. I decided I would ask you folks how you process your brass in order to find a better method.
In this situation, I'm reloading .223/5.56 for plinking rounds, to go into a 5.56 chamber on a rifle with 1:9 twist. 55 grain and 62 surplus pills, lead with a mold to be designed (hopefully) later.
Which of these processes do you folks use? Or do you use another method? If so, please describe and why you do it that way.
1. Deprime, tumble, trim and resize.
2. Deprime, tumble, resize and trim
3. Tumble, deprime/resize and trim
Also, at what length do you trim for your process?
What I'm trying to do is figure out a method that minimizes brass retrimming during multiple reloads and maximizes brass life overall. This is part of the process.
