    What's your favorite manual case trimmer??

    There is a ton of them out there, lots to choose from and lots of cost variance. What are using and why do you like it.

    I will mostly be doing 308 winchester, looking for something that is quick, precise and easy to use/set up. Priced nice would also be a plus, but not a deal breaker.

    using the forster case trimmer and I went and dropped the money on there 3 in 1 trimmer head. figured it saves a lot of time by not swapping heads. I only do 308 as well, when I need some of my match 223 brass done I just go beg wes to use his set up!!

    let me know if you want to give it a try for a few weeks, I am all processed up on my 308 brass

    So the 3 in 1 trimmer cuts down on time? Are there 3 steps to trimming brass?

    I'll be in the market soon so I should probably start understanding the process a little better.

    My Dad has the forster trimmer, dont think he has the 3 in 1 head, but he really likes it. I may check out the 3 in 1 head. I dont really have much to trim right now. I'm mostly looking into a trimmer for doing my bolt action reloading, when it comes to the m1A, I am just gonna buy LC brass from Wes, already done up!

    I also like how it says will stay sharp for life if only trimming brass....

    So basically saying its not suggested to anyone reloading steel case and wants to trim it...

    I dont load a ton of calibers, so I went with the world's finest trimmer, by lil crow gunworks.
    These things trim within 1/1000 of an inch and square the neck perfectly.
    They arent the cheapest method, but easy to use and if you dont do a lot of calibers, they arent a bad way to go.
