Default Cutting, resizing brass

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but anyhow .......

Is there a way to make a clean cut into brass without knarling it all up?

I was cutting into some Winchester 30-30 brass I found (for a secret project :thinking using a hacksaw used for cutting metal. Not pretty. I need something smaller and more delicate, and was wondering if a dremel would work.

yes and no. a dremel will still leave a rough edge. if you want to shorten it, use a case trimmer with the limiter pulled way back. if you want to cut into the side, use a file. power tools and brass dont go along well. brass is just too soft for most power cutting tools. a good file will do most any brass work about as fast as a hacksaw or power tool and leave a far neater edge. if you dont want to tralk about what youre making in ipen forum PM me with specifics and i might be able to help you further. without specifics of what you are doing i cant really help you much.
