Gentlemen, and Fellow Rascals:
Here's a handloading question, that I've been wondering about recently.
Let me preface, by saying.....
Granted, case lengths should be the same in any batch of of loaded rounds, to help keep the neck tension uniform.
It is especially important to have case lengths all the same if you are crimping, so the Crimps are uniform.
Now, the question...?????
Just how close do they have to be in length? (For Crimped Rounds), ( in .xxx )
Are we talking about .002, .004, .007, .010, for example?? My own theory is that several thou. diff is OK.
I've noticed that even when I trim all cases with the same setting of my Forster Case Trimmer, there is some variance in their lengths.
Thanks for your thoughts, or experiences regarding this.
