    I used a Forster trimmer for 25+ years. Your post is the first I've heard of it, but I did a search and it is apparently being offered.

    RCBS first offered such, and I thought it was neat.

    When I started loading huge quantities of .223, I bought a Giraud which has this feature. It speeds things up a lot.

    I use both the .223 and .308 version on my Forster. The tool works well and saves a lot of time! The carbide cutters are single, though. Wish they were double or triple...but that would cost a mint.

    I got an RCBS 3-way, which is not easy to get adjusted, but once I did it worked well. This pic is on a mill with a Lee case lock actuated by vise grips.

    I learned how to not stretch cases, which is better than trimming.

    But in general, everything Forster is better than RCBS.
