Review: LEE 50bmg case trimmer

www.leeprecision.com/cgi/catalog/browse.cgi?1113746014.5272=/html/catalog/casecon.html

At a total cost of 30$ retail "cheaper if you look around" its a hell of a deal

The good points..

Its affordable.
It cuts all the brass the same size
You can use it with a cordless drill "all most a must"
You canít over cut the brass.

The Bad..

The cutter head is to small, it makes the cutting job harder then it needs to be. it needs to be about 1/8th of a inch wider then it is now. Right now is about the same size as the outside of the 50 neck.

The knurled part is to small, it needs to be fully knurled to get a better grip on it. i tried to put it in a lathe to do this, but its about as had as carbide, so thatís not going to happen.
i suggest holding it with a pair of vice grips to save your fingers.

LEE also needs to remake there 3$ Chamfer Tool so it can be used on 50's, they would sell quite a few at that price.

Right now in using this monster
