Another question. If a case is below the trim to length is it okay to use? I'm trimming to 2.005. The case measures 1.997

There are many factory loads that the brass is pretty short. As long as you have plenty of tension surface to hold the bullet when seated,I load them.
.008 isn't really that short.

Clean the lube out of your sizing die. Use a dry slicone powder to lube the necks.
