Then finally (if necessary) I trim the casing to the proper length.

    I will add, after trimming deburr and chamfer. I also inspect them all and if I didn't trim or lube and all looks clean them they are bagged as ready. If I did any trimming or they appear dirty or oily then they get another cleaning as I want it all dry, sized, and clean when I start.

    I take it that the decapping die doesn't contact the case wall, inside or out?
    No, it is a quick job, I use a hand press for this stage as I think I can feel things better and get to see more than on the bench mounted press.
