    Two quick followups..

    1. How short is too short? I have a few that are in the 1.735 range.. Still good to go?

    2. I'm loading for a carbine and not a precision rifle. Is it ok to toss this all together, or should I segregate the 1.750 trimmed cases from the shorties?

    Thanks, as always you guys are awesome!

    1. Perfectly fine
    1.73 is minimum spec.

    2. Mix em up an shoot em as long as your not loading on the ragged edge for pressure.

    A noted, fine for blasting ammo. When shooting precision, more concistent the better.
