When you prep 9mm cases for loading do you trim each and every one to a set length or just check to make sure none are over the max OAL and go?

Heh. I just clean the brass in my tumbler and throw it into my case feeder and go.

Its just 9mm not 500 S&W.

Seriously, if I end up with a couple that don't chamber out of a few hundred, I'm not going to worry about it. All of the IPSC guys taht I know, do not trim any of their pistol brass (9mm/40 S&W/45 ACP).

aye, they're right. Don't worry about it. Only worry when its been reloaded many times, you're using a hot load and its been reloaded several times, or its rifle casings.

I do not worry about it. If it gets to long and wont chamber just toss it. Same with 45 ACP. I have 10 and 15 reloads on some of my 9s

I set my calipers to just below the max trim length and lock it in with the set screw. Then I sit back and pass them through the jaws while I watch TV or something. If I get one that is a bit tight or worse, I set it aside and check those one at a time...

I have a small babyfood jar that has those which have been too long. I have been loading MANY 9mms over the years and have yet to fill it... just too much brass around to hassle with it...
