    Well been here in the gun room working on some brass , And was just wondering if anybody else sizes first , before cutting there brass. There is alot of people that I know who just cut new brass and just shoot and when they deprime it then it will size it . Myself I try to strive and stay consicent and keep things the same and go the extra , to make sure I am as accurate as can be , like to know what you guys think or do .

    Resizing can strech the case.
