Hornadt 265 FTX Bullet Question

I am needing to know if i need to trim the brass to a certian length as with the 225 FTX ill be using for these Hornady 265 FTX in my RSRH 44 Magnum 9.5"bbl. I had to trim the cases down to 1.255" & i am wondering if the Hornady 265 FTX require the same so they will fit in the cylinder of my Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Magnum

I think that all of the ammo that Hornady could load with the FTX type bullets will have a shorter case even if the ammo itself doesn't have the FTX bullet. make up a dummy load and see if it will cause a problem
