    Is it necessary to resize if all the cartridges readily fit the revolver chamber. I am shooting a Blackhawk.

    OK, sorry. I just sufferred a major brain fart. Of course I have to resize them, to get the neck tension. Think I will go to bed and get some rest. My mind is obviously not capable of reloading right now.

    There are people who don't resize. I'm not one of them.

    EDIT: D'OH! Talk about incoherent. I rectal-cranially inverted "resizing" & "case trimming.":banghead:

    Ummm... I think most pistol decapping dies resize as well.

    Though it's not necessary I've recently started using One Shot case lube on pistol brass. Sure makes the 'capping/sizing job easier.
