Hi there, new to the forums and reloading. I am impressed by the wealth of information you guys are putting on here! Hope to see a lot more! GOOD JOB!!!
With that being said, my question has to do with case trimmers. Id like to invest in a nice case trimmer but am very up in the air on which way to go. I think Ive looked at every possible one out there but cant quite decide! I honestly like the lee hand held trimmer it seems so simple! I have all hornady equipment as far as press, scale, primer, measure, and dies. Should I stick with hornady for a trimmer!? Or others!?topH20terrorParticipantJanuary 7, 2014 at 2:53 amPost count: 1361
I’ve had the RCBS, the Hornady and now I have a L.E. Wilson. IMO the Wilson is the best I’ve used so far. Here’s the one I have……..

I haven’t actually looked at a Wilson till you mentioned it! It looks like a fine tool, does the case holding aid in a clean cut?topH20terrorParticipantJanuary 7, 2014 at 3:25 amPost count: 1361

The other thing I like about it is the fact it is easily clamped to my bench when I use it to trim and then I can store it out of the way when I’m not using it. I use a big clamp to hold it to my bench. Here’s a pic I just took to show you what I mean……………KHughesParticipantJanuary 7, 2014 at 3:40 amPost count: 128
My personal favorite trimmer is the Kwik Case Trimmer I have trimmed 4000 pieces of .223 brass with mine so far. Chuck it up in a drill press and off you go. I also use the drill press adapter to hold a RCBS Chamfering/Deburring tool and do all that with the drill press as well.

Redding makes a nice one. I like mine so far.casey_leeParticipantJanuary 7, 2014 at 4:08 amPost count: 49
Trevor, that trimmer looks like I could chuck up and turn a crank shaft lol!rmillerParticipantJanuary 7, 2014 at 12:22 pmPost count: 21
I had a Wilson trimmer and they work very well ,but for trimming alot of cases I took the plunge and bought a rcbs power pro trimmer. It is a great trimmer, it trims, chamfers and deburs the cases all in one deal. Takes a little time to get the cutters set up, but once it is you can trimm alot of cases in no time.deaddogwalkinParticipantJanuary 8, 2014 at 5:47 pmPost count: 701
I run a lyman with the power adapter to use a power screwdriver. I use a small rechargeable drill. Once set up it will trim cases fast. One thing make sure you get the carbide cutter. It will last alot longer than the standard. I debur and chamfer with my RCBS case prep center.m sauerParticipantJanuary 8, 2014 at 8:18 pmPost count: 1285
I used the RCBS with the 3-way attachment, which chamfer and deburs all in one shot.geneParticipantJanuary 8, 2014 at 9:25 pmPost count: 582
I have the RCBS trim-pro,but since I got the WFT by Little Crow Industries I haven’t used it since….jddowningParticipantFebruary 2, 2014 at 2:50 amPost count: 7
If you do quite a bit of trimming, look at the giraud trimmer out of Texas. I love mine.webspec_adminKeymasterFebruary 2, 2014 at 7:01 amPost count: 18880
Lyman just came out with a slick setup. You get the 4 most common sizes and can use a cordless drill if wanted. Sportsmans has them for $25.
