Minimum/maxmimum case length for .45 ACP?
Although I seem to have the technique down pretty well, there are still a few reloading facts I don't have figured out. One, is the length of the case. I have a Speer reloading guide and it states that the length of the (empty) case should be .898". It doesn't say if this is maximum or minimum length. The instruction sheet that accompanied my Lee Dies was a little more helpful and said that the "maximum trim length" should be .898"
I know, that when a case gets beyond maximum length, it needs to be trimmed if you want to continue reloading it. In there a minimum length, or is that something you don't usually run into, assuming the case is in decent shape?
Thanks, as always for your patience.
