    I have one and its the best hands down. I have Never seen someone that has had one sell it for something else.
    But know alot of folks that sold their other trimmer to buy a Giraud!

    I am not argueing that thats a nice trimmer but I would need to be trimming a lot of brass to justify that.

    I know this isn't exactly what you are asking but what I use is a Lee trimmer and electric drill. You can go through 100 pieces of brass in no time. They can be de-burred at the same time.

    I went with the cheapest electric trimmer. The Lyman Universal w/ the "power adapter". No extra parts to buy and more control over case length than the Lee system. Can't debur on it though, which is fine by me. I debur by hand to keep cut metal to a minimum.

    Not as fast as the Lee (which I also have) but more versatile and cheaper if you do many calibers.

    Chuck a Lee trimmer up in a 1/2" drill.

    I agree that the Giraud is the best. Sure, it cost alot, but when you trim alot of brass, and hate to do it as much as I, its worth it!
