I'm using the RCBS trim PRO and I don't find it gives consistent trim length? What are you guys using?

the trim pro (electric) works great (+/-.0005) IF your methodology is consistant when operating.

I have a Giraud for 30/06 and .308. For everything else, I use a Wilson manual trimmer.

Why would the electric version be more accurate?

I don't know if it's MORE accurate, just easier/faster to use, again, methodology is key to accurate.

Little Crow Gunworks Custom Rifle and Gunsmithing, Spicer, Minnesota Best trimmer out there,but only for handloaders that want a accurate and fast trimming method. All you need is a pistol drill with a 3/8s chuck. I have two 22/250 and 7mm wsm. I can trim 50 cs in less then 10 minutes. Log on to web site they have videos to watch.......... I have the Wilson its a pain in the *****
