    I have been using the lee case trimmer with a cordless drill, the first lock stud I bought was off center, they took it back and gave me another one. I just got the Midway usa mater catalog, hornady and foster case trimmers look good. What do ya'll use?

    I have a RCBS case trimmer, that I dont use. Got anything to trade? Hell, why do you need to trim cases?

    I use the Forster. Attach a cordless drill to it and go. I do large batches at once. I trim all my bottleneck cases every loading so I get a consistant crimp.

    I use the Lyman universal. I only do 100 at a time.

    I've tried them all and found the Possum Hollow Case trimmer the best for rifle cartridges when used with the power drill adapter.

    Kwick Case Trimmers at Possum Hollow Products, Inc.

    It indexes off of the case shoulder so there is no need to mount the case in a holder.

    I use a power drill which I anchor in a vise. Then insert each sized cartridge into the trimmer by hand and in seconds it is the exact size.

    It is very fast and accurate.

    Check out Giraud Tool at GTC Home

    His trimmers get rave reviews.
