    I use a Lee quick trim which come in 204 ruger. It's pretty cheap and chearfull but does the job and is spot on accurate. I think I paid around 20 - 25 for the trimmer and press die.

    spottsman of derby carry them and also a more expensive alternative for the 204.

    I modified a 22/250 Lee trimmer for .204, it works spot on.

    I use the Forester Classic hand lathe, interchangeable pilots for all calibers, job well done for sensible money.

    cheers gents, I will have to have a look and get fully set up for reloading, and also is it worth uniforming the flash hole?
