Default ? about preping brass






After I trim My brass. I debur the outside of the case than use that tool to put the bevel cut on the inside so the bullet will seat in the brass smothly... What I was wondering... Do you put the bevel cut in the brass every time you load it... Or is once good as long as you dont trim your brass???

You only need to do it when you trim the cases.

You don't have too. But I find I minimize runout when I chamfer the inside a little every load. If you find your scraping copper off of the bullet when seating cause you die is squeezing the neck a little much, then chamfer, if not don't. Sometimes I do, and some cartrdiges I don't.

Without trimming, unless a visual inspectionsuggests otherwise, you shouldn't have to deburr/chamfer. The cutting blade on the trimmeris what makes the damaging burrs, so you should be fine without. Remember, you still need to check each case to make sure there isn't any obvious brass burrs sticking out, then you're good to go.

Just be sure any chamfering you do is minimal. You don't want to be putting knife edges on your brass, simply removing any burrs from trimming. A little chamfer on the inside of the case moth, when done evenly, will aid in straighter bullet seating, like bigcountry said.
