It gets cut before trimming.

I use a Dillon size die with the 1500 trimmer on a 550 press. I use a .30 caliber neck expander if loading HPBT bullets and the lee with NOE expander for lead bullets after sizing and trimming. I’m using Whidden’s 300 BLK trimmer tool head. It was an investment but I process a lot of brass efficiently and it has been “Match Grade” ammo With less than .002 runout.
