    Wanted. Case trimmer .257r

    God trying to put together a flippin' reloading kit for this .257 Roberts is proving to be a nightmare
    As above wanted

    Lee Case Length Gage and Shellholder 257 Roberts - 90123 - Midway UK

    find the case length you want to trim to and sand the tip of the case length guage down until you achieve it.
    fastest easiest and cheapest way to accurately trim a case

    Case is held at the neck
    the trimmer has four blades
    the cutter cant "overcut" as the pin stops it

    That's the downside of the more exotic calibres. I spent quite a bit on the 243 Ackley sourcing bits and pieces. Regards JCS

    Isn't that normal for Midway?!

    have you tried Kranks? Lee Reloading specialists
    ​Or Hannams

    or:

    7x57 and some grinding paste down to 6.5!!

    From my understanding if handloaded well will leave the .243 boys standing

    Have you tried reloading solutions for your .257roberts case trimmer? Failing that and the other suggestions above why not order direct from the U.S. with one of the Lee online dealers. In the past I have found these to be quicker and more reliable than some of the U.K. suppliers.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    You need to be clear when you say 257 Roberts as this uses a rimless case.
    Saying 257r suggests your using the "rimmed" 7x57r case.

    Cheers Sharkey
