    To clarify,
    You should Resize, BEFORE trimming.
    You should encounter no problems with resizing a long case.

      What Smitty said. Definitely resize before you trim. If you can set your die up to neck size or partially full length resize, that will reduce case stretching at each firing and require less trimming as well as make cases last longer. Especially important with belted mags. Case lube dents on a case are harmless and get ironed out during firing.
      Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

        How long do you leave brass in a cleaning machine?

        Some of my cases are dimpling/wrinkling around the entire circumference of the shoulder, as if they might be .... over-stretched. Have any of you experienced this? Should I take it as a sign that it's time to throw that casing away?

        Thanks for anything you've got!
        I don't have any advice to help you with your question, but you have just about the perfect handle for this shooting forum... lol
