Thread: Which Case Trimming Setup?

  1. #1

    Which Case Trimming Setup?

    I'm looking at getting a trimming station as the hand held lee care trimmers are painfully slow, even with a battery drill on the end.

    I've looked at the Hornady Cam Lock and the RCBS Trim Pro Manual. Leaning towards the Hornady unit as I don't really want to spend more than 100 and appreciate I'll need calibre specific attachment in with the cost of the trimmer unit. Will need it for .223 and .308

    Looking for advise from people who use trimming stations as to what is a good one.

    I think the best two are the forster and Wilson. I like forster as you don't need the individual case holders. I reload for quite a few calibers though.

    I maybe wrong but a Wilson setup isn't gonna come in my approx 100 budget.

    Have you looked at the Lee deluxe case trim?

    It is cheap, accurate and fast. By trimming to length and applying an external/internal chamfer you are killing all the birds in one hit.

    Which means that you do not have to reset your trimmer for chamfering, which I found to be a PITA with Lyman and similar trimmers.

    I've had mine for about 4 months, and its good kit.

    Who supplies these in the UK? Can't find them anywhere.

    Wish I was still in a machine shop, I'd make one of these, just an end mill mounted in a frame.
