I agree. Resize,dump,seat & shoot works great for me.

Nice write up & illustrations though.

I'm kind of a newbie at this, but I didn't see anything about outside neck turning. Is this a needed step for neck thickness consistency?

Case prep helps,for sure.
If the member of the fire wants to go ahead and make a long ,informative post about case prep,who are we to argue?

probably would go over better in the longe range section,but not a big deal to me.I appreciate the info.

My. And I just shot my first batch of 45-70 handloads, a bunch of .243 and 30-30 too. Fun, but lots to learn, so thanks for this article.

I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters. Do they just give you a bra and say, “Here, fill this out?”

Jeez,the only time I went through all that crap was when I was BR shooting.Thats when a couple thousands in a group can be the difference between a win and a loss.All I worry about is the bullet concentric with the bore???All the rest is a waste of time.

Some, like my brother, enjoy the details of the process. I personally do not enjoy it THAT much. I like to do it right, but yeah, dump powder, seat bullet, shoot, repeat is more to my liking.

I don't like sorting cases by weight until they have been trimmed once.
