    How are the trim dies that you file the case off with compared to other methods of case trimming?

    They work pretty well but I personaly would rather use a lathe type case trimmer , that way you don't have to worry about filijg down your die.
    I do however use this type of de when I refome case and the necks grow pretty long , I use a fine hacksaw blade to cu them off then finish the trimming in a lathe type unit.

    All in all , they work great a bit slower but still very functional.

    If you don't already have the trim dies get a Forster or other high end trimmer...
