What is case trim length?

In the standard calibres we have to trim because, as the case gets longer with the brass flowing forwards, the case will end up too long to actually chamber in the rifle. So, we trim the case back to a set distance to give us clearance in the chamber. The length we trim back to is called the ‘trim length’.
