    I would say no; in my opinion you would be better with a dedicated neck turning tool such as the K&M or the one made by 21st Century Shooting. Its also something that you might not necessarily need to do anyway.

    As for trimmers, this looks interesting but its calibre specific... http://www.accurateshooter.com/gear-reviews/worlds-finest-trimmer-power-case-trimmer/



    No I don't have one of those... Its hard to beat the Sinclair/Wilson, which can also be powered by a cordless screwdriver if you want. I really like mine ...

    Only .243 for now. T3 Tikka with Sako and fed brass for hunting.
    I keep reading that consistent neck thickness is the the way.

    In a standard factory rifle I doubt if you'll notice the difference provided you use quality brass. Don't buy into the hype. Get the Lee .243 trimmer (simple, quick, cheap) and spend your hard earned cash on things that matter.... like more powder and bullets!~Muir

    I'm with Muir on this . but i'll go further and say half the stuff you read on reloading tools is there just to sell you the tools.


    YOU DON'T NEED A LOT OF THEM

    For normal hand loading I use the Lee Trimmer and stud, for the last couple of years have also
    used it with a cordless drill but before that by fingers, that's for modern easy to get cases. If I have to form cases like for the 6.5x53R then I break out the Lyman universal trimmer. I brought it used off the club secretaries widow after his untimely death. In fact it was in my place already a I had borrowed it from him. Have the Lee studs in:-

    22/250, 6.5x55, 308, 303 British, 270 Win, 300 Win mag

    Very useful they are too.

    I like the Lee set-up so well that I make custom studs for calibers like 9.3x57 and 8x57J and 8.15x46R~Muir
