Reloading .223/5.56

Recommended Posts

Yes you size first then trim. Review your Lyman  reloading manual  and they cover this.  Cases grow when you resize  and that is why you need to do that first.  Don't be stingy on the lube and if you don't have one buy or make a case extractor.  No need to ask why.

You trim after you size? I just got some dies to go with the press I got from FW, and a little tub of unique case lube. Gonna start decapping and sizing a few to get a feel for what I'm doing. Guess I should have started with pistol instead of Blackout.

Yes. Trim after sizing.  Or at least check lengths after sizing as the cases grow in length during the sizing process.
