Hornady LnL case prep center for accurate handloading

I'm looking to start handloading for rifle cartridges, primarily my new 300 win. mag. May also eventually do 270 win and 243. Only rifle cartridge I might reload for (high volume) is .223.

I've reloaded pistol ammo for a couple of years, so I've been able to get by without a case trimmer. I've narrowed it down to 2 options:

The new Hornady LnL prep center, or a Sinclair-Wilson SS case trimmer w/micrometer + an RCBS case prep center. Either option is fairly close in price. Anyone have any thoughts as to the how repeatable the Hornady is? The convenience of it is tempting, but if it's noticibly less precise than the Wilson I won't be happy.

Quick answers appreciated, I've got to get the order in soon so Santa can bring it!

Doesn't anyone have an opinion on the Hornady vs. the Sinclair?

C'mon, help a brother out

I use a Forster. It does what it is supposed to do.

I have the Sinclair that you want and love it. I don't see a need for the prep center though.

Good luck,
Ray

Thanks for the replies guys. Everything I've read so far indicates the Wilson is a great trimmer, and probably the best of the manual-type trimmers.

I'm not finding much info on the accuracy of the Hornady prep center though.

There is an adapter available for the Wilson trimmer that allows you to use a cordless drill or screwdriver.

That is what I have done, makes it a lot quicker and easier.
