I haven't a clue what tool you're talking about but, for a factory rifle, getting anything fancier or more costly than the Forster HOT-100 neck turner is meaningless.

Re: anyone use 21st century neck turning tool?

you can look @ 21centuryshooting,com .Not turning for a factory gun ,A nesika k custom with a krieger barrel .290 chamber 6.5x284 ,Lapua brass. Just getting into the turning thing (newby) as you guy's would say. Been reloading for 20 years just trying to get into better groups. Also have a 6mmbr built on a stiller predator action w/schilen barrel had it built w/no turn chamber would it help to turn the necks on these?

I use the Sinclair tool and an RCBS trimmer and it seems to work just fine. A neck turner is a neck turner, if you ask me.

Re: anyone use 21st century neck turning tool?

I just purchased a 21st Century Neck turner with the lathe setup. Anything that makes turning necks faster, easier, and more accurate is worth it's weight in gold in my opinion. I'll let you know how it works out.

For years I have used the Sinclair NT-1000 hand held. Takes me about 4 hours to turn 100 cases and that is after tool setup. And then my hands and wrist ache for a week.

Check out this video on the 21 Century.

I don't have my speakers hooked up. But from watching the video, it appears that the head that holds the cutter rocks back and forth while he runs the drill.

If I can see that in a tiny little window, then it can't be good for tolerances.

I've used my Lyman trimmer with the neck turning and power screwdriver attachment for quite a while with satisfactory results. There's certainly no discernable wiggle while it's cutting.

My main complaint with the Lyman is that there's no micrometer adjustment. So, it's trial and error for any new setup.

I sure wouldn't mind something better if it doesn't break the bank or cripple my hands.
