I realize My COL/2.850 exceeds the recommended, my gun would except up to 3.0" but I am not sure if it would feed properly from the magazine, I have not checked.

Providing reasonable "Minute of White Tail" groups @ 50 Meters, my personal limit for Ironsight hunting....58 year old eyes don't work very good anymore. But again, further experimenting I feel could tighten the groups up more. COL =2.850"/no crimp. Looking back at my log I did shoot a 1.9", 6 shot group @ 75 yards! .Once, with this load. As far as trimming I have not shot enough brass that warrant trimming, so I cant help you there. Perhaps you could use a 7MM pilot and put a wrap or two of tape/heatshrink/of aluminum furnace duct tape on it , realize its kinda redneck but I think it would suffice.

Thanks again for your help. I'm still doing research on the net for a case length trimmer, and reloading info.

IIRC, Lee makes one - and if they don't they will custom make one for a nominal fee....

Merle - will give Lee a call on Monday. Was hoping someone else, like Lyman (E-Zee Trim hand Case Trimmers) made one.

I just picked up two boxes of the Hornady's 128gr SP, from a reloader at my gun club who said he no longer loads for that caliber for $5 per box. How many & how much are we talking about, for the FMJ pulled bullets?
