Thread: New press & trimmer

  1. #1

    New press & trimmer

    I'm in the market for a new press and case trimmer, what's the recommendations guys. What do you use?
    I'm still using the Lee ones I got in a kit, works fine but just looking for something with a bit more strength for when I'm full length resizing. Also want to get away from using a cordless drill for trimming.
    Cheers

    I have a Forster press. the best press i have ever used in over 30 years of reloading. Full length resizing is a doddle with it.
    Case trimmer is a Forster Original trimmer.
    I confess i do like Forster gear.
    Having said that, i did well enough for many years with Lee gear.

    Nothing wrong with lee presses. I used to load all my 338LM on a hand press, and thats full length sizing too. And thats a big bit of brass to size.

    If you think full length sizing is 'too hard' then you need to look at how you are doing it, lubes etc.

    Now no one said it was too hard & I'm sure I don't need to look at how I'm doing it as all is well with the reloading thus far, no stuck cases etc etc!
    All I said was that the Lee equipment worked perfectly fine but I was looking for a press with more strength to it. Basically looking to upgrade my equipment piece by piece as I enjoy the reloading side of the Sport so much.

    I changed to a Lee De-Luxe trimmer, fits in the press, couple of turns and it is trimmed as well as chamfered in and out. There are one thou. click stops to trim a little shorter if required. Well worth the £20 or thereabouts and very quick and accurate.

    That's what I use...takes a little getting used to but makes trimming a doddle ...

    Hi Enigma

    If when you buy a new press you want to offload your Lee my friend is looking for one.

    Pm if you want to do a little business in due course

    Cheers
