I've been reloading for about six months now. So far, I've noticed that trimming cases back to their proper length tends to take up the biggest chunk of my time. I always try to get the case length to the right length within 1 or 2 thousandths of an inch. Perhaps, I'm a bit too anal. I currently use a standard Lyman case trimmer: http://www.tirito.com.ar/Venta/Elementos de Recarga/Fotos/Lyman_UniversalCaseTrimmer.jpg Perhaps I'm doing something wrong or inefficient, but it takes close to an hour just to trim about 30 rounds of .308 casings on average. Does it normally take that long to trim once fired brass or is there a better way of doing it? Any comments on methods, different equipment etc is welcome. Thanks.
