    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 A$$

    tried a lot of case trimmers till I got my hands on a Wilson. Nothing cuts as square and as consistent

    I have a couple different trimmers. The Lee trimmer is the only one that isn't covered in dust :)

    Another vote for the Wilson. It's very simple and works great, very consistent.

    But its so dang slow. My little crow is accurate every single time and is square as your inserting it into machined guide for your caliber specific. Not kidding 50 cases under 10 minutes .

    I use an ancient rcbs with no problems at all. Have a hornady also but never even tested it, Come to think of it I should.
