Just ordered their new Quick Trim with a trim die for .223 today. Hopefully, they'll produce a .300 Blackout die soon, as that's also a round that I'll be loading.

Unlike Lee's other trim systems, this one is adjustable. Hope it works better than their Toadmaster!!!:evil:

I got mine in the mail yesterday along with some pistol caliber dies. I've got some rifle sized dies coming next week. I was pleased with it's operation yesterday as I ran through a bunch of 9 mm and 45 ACP cases. As mentioned in another thread, while trimming those cases isn't as critical as bottle necked rifle cases I went ahead and ordered as many calibers I could for the ones I reload. It worked great, and the Deluxe trimmer chamfers and deburrs the case mouth in the trimming operation. That whole operation takes about the same time per case as it does to charge a case and seat a bullet.
I'm getting a 9mm Makarov trim die next week and am anxious to see how it works for trimming Luger cases down to Makarov dimensions.

Thread highjack! Thread highjack!

cutting luger cases to mak dimensions??! Do tell! Really, I have been trying to find the answer to this question for a long while (at least a week). I was going to get some 9x21 cases and trim them down since they are closer to the saami specs of a 9x18 except for the rim thickness. However, after spending a fruitless afternoon looking for 9x18 jacketed boolits at the gun show yesterday I have sorta given up on the idea for now. But it's still something I would like to know about; how it works initially, and how long the cases may last after fire forming them to the increased size, how well the extractor grabs the smaller base, etc.
