    Any of you guys own/seen the Little Crow case trimmer? I watched the video clip. It attaches to a drill chuck, ya stick the neck in the cutting head and it trims to lenght based off the shoulder. They say you can use the same head for several calibers like .308, 7MM-08, .243 and a seperate head for .270 & '06. Looks like a pretty neat machine.

    Yes a great trimmer system. I recently made the transition from Lee to the WFT.

    I still find that i need to debur/chamfer the case mouths though. I trim all the cases, then dress up the mouths. Process goes quick.

    Try a higher speed setting.

    With that said, I've been following him for about 3 years now, since he was still in development and before he really had a finished product. I've tried quite a few but haven't bought one yet as I haven't had a need to trim cases in a while. It worked great on my drill at the highest speed setting, no need to debur\chamfer, especially after tumbling again.

    Thanks. It is not that the cases need chamfer/deburring, but I can feel a little ledge with my finger nail on the outside and I prefer a little chamfer on the inside of the case mouth.

    I got this thing against sharp edges on machined parts.

    They are about as good as you are gonna get until you step up to a fully dedicated unit like the Giraud, Gracey or Dillon rt. Listed in the order of the best to next best.
