It needs to be trimmed when it gets too long..........................

Buy a dial caliper. You need one if you reload.

Yeah there's a min/max trim length, if it's trimmed to the min, you may get 4-5 loadings before it stretches out to need trimming, depends on a lot of things. If it's factory rounds you started with, ya may need trimming right away. Or not. Only the Shadow knows.
