Re: Case length trimming

You boys have obviously never seem the giraud. It like a pencil sharpener. Put the case in and out comes a perfectly trimmed case. Chamfered and deburred too!

I replaced the nut that secires the caseholder with a hornady die ring. Once I get the right and lock the ring, I can just unscrew 'em and screw in the new one when I change cases. Cost some good $$$$, but worth every penny.

    I've seen it... Ech!

    Looks good in the ads, it's expensive (~$370-ish), it takes the measurement off the shoulder instead of the case face (a very Badd idea), and if you have a lot of calibers, the shellholders (@$30 for each caliber) will make you broke.

    Catshooter, it dont know what you are talking about? It trims the case, you measure it and it is the length you want. Chamfered and deburred too.

    What the problem?

    Yes, it is expensive if you have a lot of caliber, but what is cheap in this sport?

    the Lee set-up is very cheap and more accurate and easy to use than anything out there.

    Wilson all the way for me. Very consistent and simple setup. Only 7 bucks to add new shell holders. They even make holders for full length resized cases and neck sized for some cartridges.

    I use the Dillon RT 1200 B for my high volume trimming needs (223,308,300WM) and Wilson for my low volume needs.

    The greatest thing since sliced bread ...PERIOD! No way possible to under or over trim!

    If they do not have it for your caliber call Lee and for 15 bucks they will make you a custom. I have them made in every caliber (if not already manufactured) from 17 rem to 458 lott and some huge weatherbies in between!
