    If I only neck size and don`t need to trim, do I still need to debur the inside and outside of the case neck?

    When I get brand new brass, I set my trimmer just to square the end since I don't know if it is (square) or not.

    My trimmer automatically deburrs. But if it didn't, I'd give it a few turns and test it with my fingernail to confirm.

    Once fired, sized, and neck sized... they enter the normal cycle of trimming since they usually grow a bit.

    Inside neck ream once fired or new brass. As already posted timmed brass should be rereamed.

    I just do it for my big game rifles since I could be shooting long ranges. Even then I only do it after the initial sizing and trimming.
