    Other than the videos on youtube has anyone used one of these? They seam like a simple but strong tool.

    I spend most of my time with .223 and trim 500 or so rounds at a time. I can do this by hand but I'm most interested in the way this tools indexes off the shoulder which is supposed to be a more accurate way of trimming brass.

    Any thoughts?

    I use the Possum Hollow Trimmer same concept, indexes off the shoulder. It's certainly fast, and as long as you FL size first, reasonably accurate.It will vary a bit with different head stamps, but for my use (ammo for PD hunts) it works great.

    I ordered it today and should have it by next week. I'll let you know how it works soon after.

    I have one of these for .223...it rocks. Faster than anything else I have tried, and accurate too. Much more rugged than the Possum Hollow offering. I will be getting one for .308 soon.

    Just my 02,

    Does it trim only or deburr, as well?

    Creedmoor Sports says you have to deburr after using the power trimmer.

    It trims only, but still worth what they are asking for it:).

    Nice tool, but still doesn't compare to the Giraud. Sorry, but trimming and chamfer/deburring at the same time eliminates steps and therefore saves substancial time. Time I could be sleeping, eating, or watching Top Shot! :D

    I have been lusting after a Giraud for longer than I care to admit. What a great piece of machinery.

    I am really impressed with my Giraud. The latest model offers "quick change" cutter heads, so you don't have to adjust the cutters if you trim more than one caliber.

    I understand the mfgr is a mechanical engineer who shoots competition and decided there had to be a better trimmer. So he designed one.

    I'm not sure of his production capacity, but I think it's a side line activity.

    So hurry up and order one before he decides to retire! :)

    Along with the WFT I ordered I also ordered a Lyman Case Prep Center. So I can chamfer, deburr, primer pocket clean and 2 other steps if I want to very quickly. I won't argue the that the Giraud is a better trimming unit but I think my set up will work just fine. Plus the case prep center will also be good for my other rifle and pistol cartridges.
