Does my 223 brass need resizing?

    I bought a Wilson gage to check my finished 223 reloads from range brass, it has solved a lot of jamming problems. Now I am reloading brass that was fired in my new AR15. I've noticed this fired brass (not re-sized) from my new AR15 drops right in the gage, fits perfect. Can I skip the resizing process for this brass?

    NO! All brass handloaded for a Semi-Auto must be Full Length sized. No Exceptions.

    Thanks, I'm new to 223 reloading and this helps to be able to ask questions.
     
  5. Needs resizing, however all the brass I pick up at the range falls under 'trim to' length for some reason, even after resizing. Thats a good thing as the thought of trimming 2000 pieces gives me nightmares.

    Semi auto rifle brass should be full length resized while single shot/bolt action may work with just neck resizing if to be used in the same firearm.
