Tobnpr was just trying to look out for my safety. It's all good. Experiments are often not safe. Unknowns are scary and often not safe.

So where does the extra length, after the case is fired again, come from?
It can come from the neck, even if he has trimmed the brass. The formed brass will have a shorter neck. Not ideal but it ok. A few firings later it will grow back.

I realize that and as I think we are all included in that.

I would not explain a method if it was not safe.

The only thing that I objected to was some of the info that he was saying is just not true.
