"...case gage is for proper initial adjustment of the sizing die. You need it..." Doesn't hurt, but it's not essential. Millions of rounds have been loaded long before case guage's were available.

Smile trimming 30-06 cases

Lapriester (Larry) What bramd case do you use? How does it work? How physically do you apply it to setting your re-sizing die. (beginners question) I am going to order one from Midway USA today. I was looking at the Wilson. I bought a primer pocket swager and will order the primer pocket uniformer. I am having trouble receiving e-mail so am asking here. Thank you j.k.

i give up on the case gauge argument. just follow the instructions that come with the die. you can't make the case too short they are made so the length meets the ammo spec. Let me quote from the Lee instruction sheet:
"Screw in the full length sizer until it touches the shell holder. Then loser the ram and screw in the die 1/4 to 1/3 turn more. Raise the ram and tighten the lock ring."
