Just chamfered and deburred 50 223's and 50 308's and now have a small blister on my thumb from the lee tool I use. Is there a more comfortable tool out there for doing this? Maybe with a handle?

And that is one of my all time favorite lines in a movie too.

Whenever my daughter gets hurt and starts crying, I use my best Tom Hanks immitation on her. Makes her laugh. :)

I often use a countersink bit in a cordless screwdriver. FAST!

RCBS sells a 3 way cutter for their case trimmers. This handy tool trims to length as well as champhering and deburring all in the same operation. I have been useing them for years and find them to be well worth the price. They are caliber specific so you will need one for the .223 and the .308.

I've been using a Forester deburing/camfering tool for 20 years. When I first started using it it gave me a blister on my thumb. But I got over it and have a tougher thumb. As long as it isn't on your trigger finger you're O K.:D

Wouldn't it be nice if all you had to do was throw a bunch of cases, powder, primers and bullets into one hopper and push a (one) button and out came exactly what you wanted. No calculating, no testing, no recalculating and retesting to finally get what you want. Hummmm...I guess that wouldn't be reloading as the hobby that I know.:evil:

i think lyman also sells just the bits if you already have a cordless screwdriver.

I think they're called ammunition factories, and are quite expensive, although sometimes available used. You may also have zoning issues. :D

Me, I use a Lee case trimmer holder that goes in an electric drill. I use the Lee trimmer for the particular round, then use a Lee deburring tool that lets me do both chamfer and deburr before replacing the case and doing it all over again. The drill does all the spinning, you just hold the tools against the case.

The most comfortable approach is a dedicated case trimmer that does length, chamfer and deburr all at once. I have a Gracey that works fine for 308 but I have been unable to get it to work reliably with a 223 cutter. If I were buying one of these today I'd get the Giraud, which is even more expensive but gets rave reviews from former Gracey owners.

The Giraud is fantastic if you're doing high-volume trimming. It's an excellent product.

I'll also vouch for the the RCBS 3-way cutter. In my opinion it's reason enough to buy the RCBS trimmer over another brand if you're going to be trimming rifle cases frequently.
