    A few years ago i used to reload my 7mm Magnum so i am familiar with reloading. But here is a question just to make sure. If i purchase new 50BMG winchester primed brass, do i basically charge, seat bullet, crimp and am done? Do i need to do any sizing, trimming etc? Thanks.

    in theory no, you don't need to size, trim, etc. however, i would check it with a case gauge to be sure before i loaded a bunch of them. pulling 50 bullets is a PITA

    also, depending on the gun, crimp is necessary/unnecesary

    All new brass needs to be sized and checked for length as a minimum. The case mouths will need chamfering too. Mind you, if it's already primed, it that has likely been done.
