Anyone who knoweth:
The instructions on the the LEE Case Trimmer read as follows.
"Lock deprimed case in shell holder with the lock stud. Insert pilot into the case with pin in flash hole and rotate until it stops cutting. If no metal is removed case does not need trimming."
It don't say nuthin there, about ADJUSTING the Pilot in the cutter, so I naturally assumed,,,
that it's Length, inside the case, with the pin resting in the primer hole was the gauge, WHEN it was screwed all the way into the cutter,,,,
that it would then cut until the pilot wouldn't let it continue,,,,
And, that the case length would end up somewhere near the trim length for that particular cartridge, 280 Rem. in this instance.
Howsomever, when I used it that way, it done cut way too much off my 280 Remington case. The good news is that I only overly shortened ONE case.
Am I sposed to adjust the case trimmer, or is my 280 Remington Case Length gauge out of specs. ????
