Thanks in advance.
Some trimmers require special shell holders or similar.
Speed - I prefer Possum Hollow - chuck in a drill and GO! Accurate as well.
Also use a Forster - remove the handle and use a drill as well. Very fast and accurate.
LE Wilson are also exceptional case trimmers. You do NOT need the fancy stand - wood block is plentiful and frugal.
I went and bought the LE Wilson case trimmer, where you need to get the holders separately. I'm wizzin' through brass now, with less than .005 variance each direction.I trim to 1.750 - then a quick bevel with the lyman multi tool and rcbs pocket reamer in my hand held drill. That trimmer will last forever, and keep true. - if I get lazy, I can even add the power screw driver to it. It looks tits..
Like you I was kind of set back at spending a lot of money on a trimmer. I got by for a long time using a hand crank trimmer.
Trimming was historically one of my least-favorite tasks, with reloading, now I don't mind it so much. Machine does all the work, and each casing only takes a second or two.
I have not regretted for one minute the money I spent on that trimmer.
As I'm moving my reloading stuff around at the moment, that girl will get mounted to a clamp on board, so it can get stuffed in a cabinet when I'm not using it.
. So on second thought, a dedicated cutter would work probably work well.
I do like the sound of chamfering and deburring in one go AmmoMan, that is brilliant.
I like the Lee system as well, just a bit slow when I am looking at 500 cases, but I also don’t have a table drill press just a cordless drill.
I previously used the Lee, and it worked nominally.
