For those that use a case prep center which brand do you favor. My RCBS is running out of life. looking for recommendations on a middle of the road cost.
I have used a Lyman for 10+ years. It is rugged and seems to get the job done. I recently purchased a Trim-It II micrometer adjustable 3-way case trimmer that indexes off the shoulder. It takes several minutes to get setup correctly the first time but definitely speeds the process up since it trims the case and inside/outside chamfers in one step. The only downside is if the case is too short to start with.

I have a Lyman case preparation center.... works good, does capture the shavings. For a case trimmer I use a Redding with pilots and an adjustable case head holder which is a bit fussy
