MY Hornady book(4th edition) has the TRIM TO LENGTH AS 2.005". I guess the Lee tool is set for the trim to length! Be carefull how hard you push on the lee cutter. It can drill into the base part, thereby trimming your cases to short.
I thought I did the same to a bunch of .223,,then it dawned on me. "Don't screw it all the way down"
Ya know how hard it is to get down there with that split/spread thread they have on it? Well, I guess it's so we can adjust to what ya want,, I'm gonna trim my 7-08's too book ol, I'm using them in a NEF handi with a long throat, I don't think I want to lose any more than necessary, but as mjb said "too long" is a big deal.
