Case Trimming - RCBS Trim Pro and 3-Way Cutter

I am considering purchasing a RCBS Trim Pro Power Case Trimmer to help speed up my case prep process. I am also interesed in using a Trim Pro 3-Way cutter with it.

Do they work well? Are they worth the investment? How about the Case Trimmer Collets?

I am currently using the Lee trimmer that I put on my cordless drill which works well but it seems difficult to get the case to spin without some wobble in it. I am looking to be a bit more precise.

Thanks,

Ryan

Re: Case Trimming - RCBS Trim Pro and 3-Way Cutter

The 3 way trimmer is OK for bulk brass but it doesn't work as good for precision work. The only trimmer method that can cut without running a pilot into the neck is the Wilson type trimmers. They are actually quicker to use too.

Have used the three way cutter for the past 5 or so years
Great is what I say. Have done match brass as well as others.
Using older RCBS cutter and a hand crank works....
