Case length trimming

I have a Lyman to trim cases to length. I have seen a Redding where you turn the case instead of turning the cutter like the Lyman. Is there a difference from turning the cutter vs. turning the case in uniformity or why is theirs designed the other way. What are your thoughts on this.

It won't make any difference which one you use as they both will get the job done right. I use a Wilson that turns the cutter.

My Lyman manual turns the cutter, my Lyman power turns the case. Have a Forster, it turns the case. They all get the case trimmed.

I have three Forsters, and they turn the cutter, not the case!!

Re: Case length trimming

I just got in a new Wilson trimmer a few days ago. I am very pleased with it. I like the way a shell holder grips and centers the case to ensure it is square with the cutter, rather than using a mandrel like most other trimmers. By the way, the case is stationary and the cutter turns....
