    Not to pick on you, but this kind of information is the reason one NEEDS at least one reloading manual.

    By the way, don't bother trimming pistol brass. It is not ever needed. Your brass will split or you will lose it before you will ever need to trim it. Clean it, load it, shoot it, repeat.
