    Which case trimmer should i buy?

    Hey peeps. So im looking at the RCBS trim pro 2, the forester original, or le wilson, or the hornady cam lock? The cam lock is the cheapest but the forester and wilson get better reviews.

    thoughts?

    For .223, .308 and .30-06 I use the Girdaul tri-way trimmer mounted to an old bench grinder.
    There's a thread around here called the poor man's Girdaul ( or something like that).
    Having said that. We have a RCBS trim pro sitting on the bench, doesn't get used much ,they kinda suck

    ive been reading that alot about the rcbs. Seems alot of people talk highly of the forester and wilson trimmers. A little more expensive but if they are good products then its justified.

    I have been very satisfied with my Little Crow Gun Works World's Finest Trimmer(WFT) 2 in case you haven't heard of it. Once set it seems to be very accurate and the speed of trimming cases on it is nice.

    you know i was thinking ive asked about this before and I remember someone recommending that trimmer before. I apologize if it was a dual post. I pulled the plug and ended up getting the forester trimmer. I wanted the mini lathe style of trimmer.

    So many decisions in the reloading hobby man sometimes its difficult to make the correct one.

    You did well, 7hat.
    The Little Crow is specific per caliber, but works well, and FAST.
    I have the WFT in .223 Rem., .22-250 Rem., .308 Win., and .30-06 Springfield.
    These are an addition to my RCBS Rotary trimmer for the rest of my rifle calibers..Bill.

    I know you didnít mention it but I use the layman universal case trimmer with the attachment for a power drill. Works pretty good.

    Thats another reason i went with the forester, the fact i can do multiple calibers on it.

    i liked the le wilson. Only reason i went with forester over the le wilson was due to having to buy each specific holder for the wilson.
