    My loading manuals list case maximum and trim length data, but not minumums. Does anyone know what the minimum case length is for .223 Rem and .308 Win?

    IMtheNRA,

    There is no listed minimum case length. Brass "grows" and has to be trimmed back before it intrudes into the leade. The "trim to" length is not set in stone, so if you happened to have trimmed a little too much, don't worry about it.
