Default Case Trimming Before or After Resizing?

Today I started reloading my first rifle cartridges (.30-30 Winchester). After having decapped, re-sized and then trimming my cases, it occured to me that maybe I should trim before re-sizing. What's the proper order? Thanks.

You need to trim after resizing, always. After you resize it stretches the case neck and needs to be trimmed.

+1

ALWAYS after re-size, the case length does not increase until it is sized.

Yup, after resizing as the brass grows when you resize it.
