    Hi Guys
    A quick question on case prep. If the cases were completely prepped before being reloaded, and then loaded and fired. If the cases do not need to be trimmed, do they need to be deburred and chamfered again? Sorry if this has been asked before, I could not find a answer in the older posts. Thanks for any help.

    Not normally once you do that process you can get away from it till you have to trim again.

    When you trim a case, it raises a burr on both the inside and the outside of the case mouth. That's what chamfering is for - to get rid of the burr. Once the burr is gone, it's gone. Until you trim again, which raises up another burr, requiring another chamfering.
