Depends what kind of shape the brass is in to start with, if it's range pickups with gunk on them, decap with a decapper and clean, if it is relatively clean already, do it in the sizing die, wiping lube on the case will take off anything that needs to come off as you do it. No percentage in doing more steps than necessary.

For thos not aware of this outfit, they make a bunch of press accessories and things like spent primer trays for Rockchuckers, storage trays for shell holders, comparators, pilots and some jigs for modifying things like 308 to 300blackout and some others. You may find something you can use there;

For those who may want to look at annealing units that are affordable in comparison to an AMP unit.
Todd Elfer is developing a new version of his, not ready yet as of today due to Covid and supply issues, but, shud be getting out this year I expect;

If you are interested in a decapper other than a Lee or Lyman, this one is designed especially for progressive presses, but works fine in a single or turret as well, and a vid of it in operation;

Another bullet mfgr I wasn't aware of, Maker, seem to be specialized in subsonics, and are expanding their lines as they can.

One of those roundtoits I'm getting around to posting. There is a way top adapt the Lee case trimmers to case prep centers with the screw in accessories such as the Lyman unit, just needs an adaptor.

A post on CGN about an 8.5x55 Blaser got me to searching info to see what it was about, ran across a new to me site, that may have info a person can use on bullets, powders and data. It is set up like Load Data from Petersen, some free, some protected stuff you pay for, but, may be well worth 10.00 to find out what they have there. Worth exploring, has some different stuff in it.

Was watching a vid about using a Frankford Arsenal M press, good vid, on Johnny's Reloading. He had a few small isssues with it. Reading thru the comments, a fella had posted a link to another one, that he made, as to how he fixed his issues with the M press. THought it was worth putting up for reference for those who own this press and have some issues with it;

May well be the best vid I have seen explaining the charge weights and how the over-emphasis of the chrono ES and charge weight can lead you astray.
Also happens to be a good illustration of how to achieve consistent charge weights, and the value of what you are really seeing on a .1gr scale such as a Chargemaster dispenser, or in the is case, another RCBS Scale, vs an A&D scale.
