Yes, resize first then gauge the cases. Sounds like you've not encountered a bulged case yet. Full length resizing will not rectify a bulged case because the die doesn't size down to the case head. That's when the Bulge Buster comes in.

None of them will fit in the case gauge. BUT After running the 40S&W thru my handy Lee Carbide sizing die all of the 40S&W brass slides easily into the case gauge. Question answered.
