big country, no I don't trim after every couple of shots, for some reason sometimes I need to, but then on my 338 fed and 358 win, heck I might get 6 shots or so between trimmings. What I ment was you will get your normal amout of shots plus one or 2 before you need to trim again.

0.01" won't hurt anything, just trim them all uniform and start loading. I make my 257 Wby cases from 7mm Rem Mag brass, which is 0.04" to 0.05" shorter than the Wby brass after necking down. Doesn't make a bit of difference in my rifle, but my budget appreciates the difference.
